Win a copy of the I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO tie-in Book!

2017 Academy Award Nominated Documentary (Feature)

Winner of Grolsch People’s Documentary Award at 2016 Toronto International Film Festival

To celebrate the current release of Altitude Film’s Oscar-nominated I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, in UK cinemas now. We have 2 copies of the tie-in book to win.??The powerful feature is based on JAMES BALDWIN’s notes for an unfinished novel ‘Remember This House’ widely considered as one of the greatest uncompleted works in American literature. The competition winner will have this newly-released book, which includes notes from director Raoul Peck, and images, in their very hands by answering one simple question below:

By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassinations of these three men, we uncover a larger narrative of America’s historical and current denial and irrational relationship with race. This ‘history of violence’ is also told through the long simplified narrative that Hollywood recounts as a story between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ or ‘right and wrong’, reflects our current racial precariousness. I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is also the autopsy of the American racial imagery and iconography

Narrated by SAMUEL L. JACKSON and with unprecedented access to JAMES BALDWIN’S original work, RAOUL PECK has completed the cinematic version of the book BALDWIN never wrote - a radical narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assassinations of BALDWIN’s friends, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. Whilst it is partly anchored in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is about what it means to be black in America today.
