Come celebrate Black joy and empowerment through the powerful film “I Am Not Your Negro” at our film fest!

Welcome to the Black Joy Film Fest: I Am Not Your Negro! Join us for an evening of powerful storytelling and thought-provoking cinema at the Restoration West Plaza. This event celebrates Black joy and resilience through the screening of the acclaimed documentary “I Am Not Your Negro.”

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 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 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.
