I Am Not Your Negro

This James Baldwin documentary is without a doubt one of the greatest documentaries regarding the black (and white) experience in America. I was glued. You, if you have not seen it, should do so. You can get it through Apple TV (for me tough tech to do) or you can purchase the rental or even the DVD through Amazon--Easy.

I was riveted to it and cried through it because I remember the times of which it spoke and it spoke to me. In the end Baldwin says "Not everything that is faced can be changed but nothing can be changed that is not faced." I believe, if you see it, it will speak to you too.

It should especially in this hour of Trump and his team of racist white supremacists deplorables be required viewing in this nation in every school of this nation. This must see is profoundly brilliant!
