The New York Times bestseller based on the Oscar nominated documentary film

'Baldwin's voice speaks even more powerfully today ... the prose-poet of our injustice and inhumanity ... The times have caught up with his scalding eloquence' - Variety

In June 1979, the writer and civil rights activist James Baldwin embarked on a project to tell the story of America through the lives of three of his murdered friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. He died before it could be completed.

In his documentary film, I Am Not Your Negro, Raoul Peck imagines the book Baldwin never wrote, using his original words to create a radical, powerful and poetic work on race in the United States - then, and today.

'Thrilling ... A portrait of one man's confrontation with a country that, murder by murder, as he once put it, "devastated my universe"' - The New York Times

'I Am Not Your Negro turns James Baldwin into a prophet' - Rolling Stone
