About The Event
The Camaraderie NYC is hosting a Remote Watch Club, to bring us all together for a viewing of I Am Not Your Negro.
It is imperative that each individual becomes as aware and educated as possible of the inequality that plagues our society, in order to better understand the gravity of it and find hope to bring about immeadiate and permenant change.
The Camaraderie is proud to support Black Lives Matter. We’re proud of our members who have stepped up and stepped in to correct this long-ignored wrong. And all of us won’t stop until real and permanent change is successfully enacted.
Start here - and watch with us.
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.
Open to all women, everywhere.
