In I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, Remember This House. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and a 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. Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM is an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, American history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison weaves together a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, and discussion.

WHOSE STREETS? is an account of the Ferguson uprising as told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe the movement for justice. Before George Floyd, there was the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown, an event which aroused longstanding racial tensions and inspired a community to fight back. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance.
