Location and Day Change. For this event, Mt Baker Meaningful Movies will be at the Northwest African American Museum AND the event will be held on a Friday.
Join the Northwest African American Museum, Mt Baker Meaningful Movies, American Civil Liberties Union, Social Justice Film Institute, the Mt. Baker Conversations About Race and Equity team and Michael B Maine for a free screening of I Am Not Your Negro.
This program is one of a series of events at NAAM commemorating Juneteenth, the holiday acknowledging the final abolition of slavery during the U.S. Civil War era. (Learn more at http://www.naamnw.org).
This powerful film envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words, as read by actor Samuel L. Jackson. Alongside a flood of rich archival material, the film draws upon 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.
Join us for snacks and conversation before the film. Afterwards, there will be a panel of speakers as well as time for community discussion.
Doors open at 5PM; Movie starts at 6PM.
Date and Time: June 21, 2019; 6PM
Location: Northwest African American Museum, 2300 S Massachusetts St, Seattle, WA 98144
