"I Am Not Your Negro" plus discussion 

Cert. 12A 

Thursday 13 Apr 2017. 19:30pm                        Tickets

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. 

Join FACT and Picturehouse for a screening of Raoul Peck’s incendiary new documentary about writer and social critic James Baldwin.

After the screening, social activist Malik Al Nasir will host an open discussion with an invited academic, exploring the context of the film in today’s society; how insightful were Baldwin’s words and have we progressed or retrograded?
