I Am Not Your Negro
Add to your calendar
Date: August 17, 7:00 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details:

DOCUMENTARY, 93 mins

One of the most brilliant and provocative documentaries on race relations in modern American, I Am Not Your Negro was written over fifty years ago. African-American writer James Baldwin, born the grandson of a slave, never ceased to reflect on what it means to be a black man in America. Baldwin’s voice speaks eloquently of that pain and struggle in this challenging and deeply-insightful film. Variety Magazine calls it "Transcendent. A meditation on the prophetic brilliance of James Baldwin.” A must see for all Americans. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Film at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets $10
