In 1979 poet James Baldwin began his book about the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends-Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At his death in 1987, only 30 pages had been completed. Writer-director Raoul Peck uses Baldwin’s words and his own to complete the narrative in this powerful documentary that examines race in America. He uses archival footage of James Baldwin with Dick Cavett; Samuel L. Jackson is the narrator. (Rated PG-13)
"A stirring, stinging memorial." Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter.
"It's an evocation of a passionate soul in a tumultuous era, a film that uses Baldwin's spoken words, and his notes for an unfinished book, to illuminate the struggle for civil rights." Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
