"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced." - James Baldwin

In 1979, author James Baldwin wrote a 30-page letter outlining a biography of slain civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Although Baldwin's proposed manuscript was never completed, his letter and other writings serve as fuel for an examination of race relations in America.

A 2017 Oscar nominee for best documentary film, I Am Not Your Negro is a riveting account of parts of James Baldwin’s life, his friendships, and the challenges America was entangled in during the time, which is eerily reminiscent of the challenges we face today. CCR is proud cosponsor this screening to honor this civil rights legend and to support the roll out of this important film.

SEATING IS LIMITED. Please RSVP no later than Friday, February 3, at 10:00 a.m., and ONLY if you know you can attend. Confirmation will be required.

The screening will start at 4:45. Attendees will need to arrive no later than 4:30 to be admitted into the theater.
