Details

Fifty years after the Civil Rights movement, race remains a defining issue in America. James Baldwin’s final book 'Remember This House' was due to address the lives and assassinations of his friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. The unfinished manuscript has been entrusted to director Raoul Peck who uses Baldwin’s powerful words, narrated by Samuel L Jackson, along with a wealth of archive footage to reflect on the legacy of these men and contrast with the present day killings of young African-Americans. The result is a vital, award-winning exploration of what it means to be black in America. Screening as part of Black History Month.

 There will be a Q&A after the film.
