Magnolia Pictures and Amazon Studios have released a powerful new trailer for “I Am Not Your Negro,” a month ahead of its Feb. 3 theatrical release.
In it, the late author James Baldwin describes the depressing state of American race relations.
The movie, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September, is directed by Raoul Peck and based on a manuscript for “Remember This House” as an account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends — Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. Baldwin had completed 30 pages at the time of his death in 1987.
