An Evening with Raoul Peck: Conversations on Identity, History, Race, and Baldwin

October 26, 2017, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) welcomes Raoul Peck, award winning film director and writer, for a thought provoking and insightful discussion of his latest film, “I Am Not Your Negro.” Peck will discuss the film, James Baldwin, and connect the Civil Rights Movement to the issues of segregation, education, and mass incarceration that we face today.

“For sure, we will have strong winds against us. The present time of discord and confusion is an unavoidable element. I am not naive to think that the road ahead will be easy or that the attacks will not be at time vicious. My commitment to make sure that this film will not be buried or sidelined is uncompromising.We are in it for the long run. Whatever time and effort it takes.” – Raoul Peck
