I Am Not Your Negro

The BAFTA represents the documentary’s 24th Award, having gathered over forty additional nominations.

Director Raoul Peck thanked his crew and family, and of course, his subject: “I need to thank the great James Baldwin. James Baldwin, who is the perfect image of a great humanist, and he left us with words that are today urgently necessary in a world of unapologetic ignorance.”
