Details

The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in collaboration with the Fulton County Remembrance Coalition (FCRC), will host a screening of Raoul Peck’s award-winning documentary, I Am Not Your Negro. FCRC is committed to fostering a lasting dialogue founded on truth and justice, collecting soil at the sites of Fulton County’s 35 documented racial terror lynchings, erecting historical markers, and claiming our monument from the National Memorial for Peace and Justice. Based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, and narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, this powerful film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin's reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as his personal observations of American history. This event is free and open to the public at 101 Auburn Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30303.
