Los Angeles Poverty Department’s Movie Nights at the Museum
To celebrate Black History Month, we are screening this significant film one more time: “I Am Not Your Negro” – directed by Raoul Peck | Running time: 1h 35m
In this incendiary documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book author James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and a flood of rich archival material. “I Am Not Your Negro” is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
Movie Nights at the Museum are free! Free movie screenings, free popcorn, free coffee & free conversation. Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, we screen movies about issues that are important to our Skid Row and downtown community at the #skidrowmuseum .
