To celebrate Black History Month, Seven Miles Out is partnering with Ebony and Ivory Community Organisation (EAICO) to host a free screening of the Oscar nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro UK. In June 1979, the writer and civil rights activist James Baldwin embarked on a project to tell the story of America through the lives of three of his murdered friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. He died before it could be completed. In his documentary film, I Am Not Your Negro, director Raoul Peck imagines the book Baldwin never wrote as a living essay, using his original words voiced by Samuel L Jackson, to create a radical, powerful and poetic work on race in the United States – then and today. This film tells the story of race and injustice through the eyes of someone that experienced it up close and personal.

‘Thrilling . . . A portrait of one man’s confrontation with a country that, murder by murder, as he once put it, “devastated my universe”‘ The New York Times ‘Baldwin’s voice speaks even more powerfully today . . . the prose-poet of our injustice and inhumanity . . . The times have caught up with his scalding eloquence’ Variety ‘A cinematic séance . . . One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made’ Guardian ‘I Am Not Your Negro turns James Baldwin into a prophet’ Rolling Stone Hot food/Refreshments will be available. There is no charge for the screening but voluntary donations to support the work of EAICO are most welcome.

The documentary is rated 12 in the UK so it is suitable for young teens but there is some violence, brief nudity and hard-hitting imagery. See the IMDb page for more information
