'I Am Not Your Negro' Is A Race Documentary That Should Be Essential Viewing For All Americans

Watch the first trailer for Raoul Peck's shattering film.
Magnolia Pictures

You won’t find a documentary over the next few months that’s more important than “I Am Not Your Negro.” Raoul Peck uses James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript about the civil-rights movement ― specifically Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers ― to frame America’s racial divide. The results are searing.

Peck’s film opens Feb. 3. It’s a piece of art this country desperately needs right now. Watch the new trailer below.
