Instagram photo by official_masilunga #IAmNotYourNegro is a fascinating and powerful #MustSeeMovie . Rather than making a #film about one of the great #CivilRights intellectuals #JamesBaldwin , Filmmaker #RaoulPeck crafted a unique #documentary using #Baldwin 's own words journeying through #BlackHistory & a piercing cultural analysis of #America . Baldwin's words were as impactful & profound back in the #1960s- &-so as they are now, as we get a searing examination of his words endearingly spoken & #BroughtToLife throughout by #SamuelLJackson . . We don't get the usual Documentary tropes of interpretations by anyone or any talking heads, but rather footage of Baldwin and rich archival & historical #AfricanAmerican footage accompanying his words being spoken by Jackson. The film importantly shocks just as much as it educates, providing the audience with the juxtaposition of the best & worst aspects of society within the elements of morale, ethics, & power structure. It's a #movie that brings Baldwin's work (which in this film was based on his unfinished manuscript #RememberThisHouse ) to a new generation . . We see a psychological analysis of the #blackculture throughout America's history, a nation embattled within about its own social constructs of race & racism. We get a product that's justifiably so angry & horrifying, yet captivating & poetic. We see the #CivilRightsMovement , #BlackLivesMatter , black representation in #Hollywood , as well as the life & deaths of three #BlackLeaders #MartinLutherKingJr , #MalcolmX , #MedgarEvers ) all connected together throughout #history -- demonstrating a black relevance & intelligence that's always been present but overshadowed by a struggle that's never quite ended . . The Movie effectively caps itself off by playing #KendrickLamar 's powerful & controversial song #TheBlackerTheBerry (a song with a loud political message, as well as a tale of internal struggle & the dangers of hypocrisy) throughout the #endcredits . This is an #OscarWorthy filmthat will strongly resonate w/you long after the film, further enunciated by #Kendrick 's ending song.
