    This documentary about James Baldwin by Raoul Peck is taken from videos of and writings by Baldwin.  “I Am Not Your Negro is an introduction to his work and an advanced seminar in racial politics.” -Sedat Pakay  The voice-over narration (read by Samuel L. Jackson) is entirely drawn from Baldwin’s work. Much of it comes from notes and letters written in the mid-1970s, when Baldwin was somewhat reluctantly sketching out a book, never to be completed, about the lives and deaths of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.
