The Oscar-nominated documentary envisions Remember This House, the book James Baldwin never finished, and the result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America. The film uses Baldwin’s original words, spoken by Samuel L. Jackson, and an abundance of rich archival material.
This event is free and open to the public.
