Film & Debate: I am not your negro

I Am Not Your Negro is a 2016 American documentary film directed by Raoul Peck, based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin's reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr, as well as his personal observations of American history.

After the screening on 18 May 2017, Anousha Nzume (writer of 'Hallo witte mensen') and Amma Baddoo-Asante (former politician PvdA) discussed the film.
