Remembering James Baldwin
Born on August 2, 1924. Writers live forever... Thanks for everything, Jimmy.
From Velvet Film:
The great James Baldwin (James Arthur "Jimmy" Baldwin, August 2, 1924 – December 1, 1987) would have been 94 on this day.
We are all very grateful for his sharp mind, marvellous writing and extraordinary, inspiring life of struggles and just causes...
"I Am Not Your Negro" - Official Trailer
In his new film, 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. "One of the best movies you are likely to see this year." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times http://www.IAmNotYourNegroFilm.com
