"The story of the Negro in America is the story of America, and it is not a pretty story." - James Baldwin

The year is 1979. James Baldwin writes a letter to his agent describing his next novel, "Remember this House." He describes a personal account of the lives of three of Baldwin's close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter is a history of civil rights in America.

Baldwin never finished the book. The letter and 30 manuscript pages are all that were left when Baldwin died in 1987.

This "masterpiece" documentary is filmmaker Raoul Peck's vision of the possibility of James Baldwin's "Remember this House."


Host Erroll Southers is joined by Alex Ago, Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro, and Aubrey Hicks.
