A Virtual New View Film Series - I Am Not Your Negro

October 21, 2020 @ 7:00pm

The Butler University Center for Faith and Vocation and the Center for Interfaith Cooperation continue to co-sponsor this unique webinar series to promote understanding and foster respect for differences through the lenses of interfaith understanding, diversity, civil discourse, and social justice. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

Master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is an up-to-theminute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words as a flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into Black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X., and Martin Luther King, Jr., Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

Each of us has a unique view through which we see the world. Shaped by our experiences, culture, and familial identity, this view forms our beliefs, values, and way of life. A New View Film Series will journey outside everyday life to explore new worldviews through the screening of four films and seeks to promote understanding and foster respect for differences through the lenses of interfaith understanding, diversity, civil discourse, and social justice. Each screening will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

This event is exclusively virtual and will have no in-person availability to the public.
