NORWALK — The South Norwalk Library will screen the critically acclaimed documentary “I Am Not Your Negro” at noon Saturday.
The film uses archival material and James Baldwin’s words to examine race in America. Baldwin, born in Harlem in 1924, began writing at a young age and became famous for his insight into race, sexuality and class dynamics that often go unspoken.
After the screening, a panel including Clarence Bowden, of Calvary Baptist Church; Tristan Fields, of HELP Inc.; Sandra Stokes-Simms, of South Norwalk Electric and Water; Darius Williams, of Connecticut Coalition for Change; Derrell Wilson, of Connecticut State NAACP, and Angela Harrison will discuss the film.
