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.
