In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.

Absolutely essential viewing. Searing in its insight and sobering in that so much further is left to go.

The charisma of this man is just amazing. I could watch his mobile expressions and graceful hands all day long. Plus he keeps telling us things that are so so hard to hear and so direct.
