Film Screening: 'I am Not Your Negro'

Researcher Training

The Stuart Hall Foundation in collaboration with Merton College, Oxford University and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) are organising a film screening of Raoul Peck’s Academy Award-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro followed by a panel discussion.

In his incendiary documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion with the award-winning filmmaker Isaac Julien, and writer Caryl Phillips, moderated by Professor Alison Donnell (University of East Anglia). Taking the film and James Baldwin’s work as a starting point, the speakers will discuss their own work and a life of an intellectual dissident in relation to art, politics and activism.

The event is free of charge, but due to limited availability pre-booking is essential.
