In a timely documentary (and third best film of 2016 according to Metacritic), director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished - a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America and a sobering reminder of how far we've yet to go. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. 93 minutes.  Winner of the Audience Award at Chicago International Film Festival and dozens of critics' awards from major US publications.
