I Am Not Your Negro

Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

Freedom Over Fear

My country, ‘tis of thee / Sweet land of liberty / Of thee I sing / Land where my fathers died / Land of the pilgrims’ pride / From every mountainside / Let freedom ring!

Freedom – for whom? What liberty?

To live in the land of the “pilgrims’ pride” is one thing, but what it is to be black for some in America is another.

A land that has been filled with seemingly perpetuated and excusable injustices that targets a whole nation of people” seems more appropriate.

A land full of oppression that cuts so deep, that it drives a person to be willing to trade that very liberty of the “sweet land”, and to administer a “give me liberty or give me death” ultimatum.

The explosive, forthcoming documentary I Am Not Your Negro expounds upon that ultimatum.

Borne from an unfinished thirty page manuscript called ‘Remember This House‘ by the late James Baldwin, I Am Not Your Negro delves into his personal experiences and the assassinations of Malcolm X, Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King, Jr.; his close friends.
