    I Am Not Your Negro – $6.99 Purchase

    In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.

    Now, in his incendiary new 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. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

    Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am – $6.99 Purchase

    She was born as Chloe Wofford in Lorain, Ohio, in 1931; 62 years later, Toni Morrison was in Stockholm, Sweden, receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature. The journey the celebrated author traveled in the years between and following is the subject of Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’s Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am. From her time as a student and professor at Howard University, through her editing at Random House, to her own inimitable and influential writing career, the author’s remarkable personal history is told by Morrison herself, in intimate and candid interviews, as well as via recollections and impressions from colleagues and contemporaries such as Angela Davis, Walter Mosley, and Oprah Winfrey. Myriad accolades, including the Pulitzer Prize and Presidential Medal of Freedom, are all the more impressive when viewed through the lens of Morrison’s spirited responses to adversity and acclaim, both of which she’s experienced in abundance. With this deft and stirring transition from page to screen, the author shares another inspired and inspiring story—her own.

    Whose Streets? – $6.99 Purchase

    To watch this account made by the black people who were in Ferguson, Mo., after Michael Brown’s murder is to know what happened there. Activists, neighbors, friends, parents, and artists unite over the loss of an innocent life, in the fight for the right to live. Frank, unhurried, and fearless, this film was made using a camera immersed in the protest alongside the activists. Scenes of police brutality—some caught clearly and audibly on cell phones—alternate with interviews of protestors calling out major news networks for not being there to record these militaristic actions. Footage of former President Obama’s speech (after the reading of officer Darren Wilson’s verdict) asking Ferguson law enforcement officials to maintain care and restraint is intercut with images of police starting to fire on crowds. These powerful and artfully constructed sections of media reportage at odds with activists’ accounts pave the way for several personal stories of activists in Ferguson, and the essential and emotional discussions happening in homes, in workplaces, and out in the community among people of color. Undaunted by the violence and grief, these activists fight hard to tell the real story—for it is no one’s but theirs to tell.
