He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.” After the film, noted scholar, author, and activist Robin J. DiAngelo will speak on the continued relevance of Baldwin’s work, and its particular challenge to white-skinned folks looking for ways to advance the cause of racial justice.
