I Am Not Your Negro plus discussion Cert. 12A Picture house at FACT

  • Running time94 minutes
  • GenreDocumentary

Join FACT and Picturehouse for a screening of Raoul Peck’s incendiary new documentary about writer and social critic James Baldwin. The film envisions Remember This House, the book James Baldwin never finished about the personal lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends - Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and a flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. 


After the screening, social activist Malik Al Nasir will host an open discussion with Professor Tunde Zack-Williams, exploring the context of the film in today’s society; how prophetic were Baldwin’s words, and have we progressed or retrograded? 


Malik Al Nasir is a Liverpool-born poet, film-maker and social activist. After a troubled childhood in the care system in the 1970’s, Malik emerged semi-literate. That all changed in 1984 after a chance meeting with spoken-word poet, musician and author Gil Scott-Heron, who mentored him from the streets through to University, where he went on to gain a Masters degree.


Professor Tunde Zack-Williams is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. He is the author of several books and numerous articles, reviews and editorials on the Political Economy of Africa and the African Diaspora. He is past President of the African Studies Association of the United Kingdom (2006-2008) and past member of the British Academy Africa Panel 2006-2009. In 2013, Professor Zack-Williams was awarded The Amistad Award in recognition of his distinguished service to Human Rights and Outstanding Contributions to Amistad and African Studies by The Amistad Committee, Centre for Africana Studies, Central Connecticut state University, USA. He is an editor of the world-renowned journal, The Review of African Political Economy.
