I Am Not Your Negro (Vintage International)

This book is about James Baldwin
"I Am Not Your Negro" is a profound exploration into the racial injustices that have shaped American history, envisioned through the unfinished work of one of America’s most significant writers, James Baldwin. Published on February 7, 2017, the book delves into Baldwin’s personal reflections on the lives and assassinations of his friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. Crafted from Baldwin’s unpublished notes, essays, and interviews, and brought to life by Raoul Peck's Academy Award-nominated documentary, this narrative is a compelling blend of personal and historical perspectives. The text is enriched with over 40 poignant black-and-white images from the film, enhancing the reader's engagement with the themes of racial justice. Suited for college students, the book offers a powerful lens to examine the complex fabric of American social and racial history, encouraging readers to ponder how far we have come and how far we still have to go in achieving true equality. This bestseller is not just a book but a resonant call to confront and discuss the pervasive legacy of racism.
