I Am Not Your Negro: the most impressive aspect of Raoul Peck’s documentary is how much the words and considerations of James Baldwyn on racism resonate today, still; while it raises the relevance of the film even more, it’s another evidence that things haven’t evolved all that much in the past thirty, forty, fifty years. However, what this film has in power and poetry, it lacks in context (for those not knowledgeable about the civil rights movement). Alexandra Strauss’ editing beautifully mixes a smorgasbord of archival material (photos, films, interviews, etc) that enrich Baldwyn’s discourse. He was a magnificent, convincing speaker, which makes those interviews and lectures very powerful. His written words (equally powerful) are very nicely read by a subdued Samuel L. Jackson.
