Thirty years after the death of James Baldwin, Raoul Peck resurrects his unfinished final manuscript for a vital examination of race in America. Deftly editing between black representation in media and archival footage ranging from the past to the present, Peck highlights how Baldwin's words (narrated by Samuel L. Jackson) still apply to society today · (Raoul Peck, 2016).
Post-screening panel discussion with Jacqueline Stewart (Professor, Cinema and Media Studies), Paul Cato (Ph.D. Student, Social Thought), and Cecil McDonald, Jr. (Photographer, 2012-13 Arts + Public Life / Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture Artist-in-Residence).
