Yellow Wednesdays is a film club open to all at The Impact Hub in Digbeth.
This month’s offering is 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.
This event will also include a performance from spoken word artist Siana Bangura, and a post film discussion on some of the themes raised in the film. Please note that doors open at 18:00 and the film will start promptly at 18:30.
