Join Edward McNulty, editor and film reviewer at Visual Parables, and Ken Bedell, founder of, for a lively and thoughtful discussion of movies that matter.

When screenwriters and directors address subjects like racism, they may help us see reality and discover something about ourselves. Movie discussions are a good environment to learn from others and test our experiences and understandings.

These discussions are intended for anyone who wants to explore racism as it exists and consider – with others – the implications for our lives. Diversity of backgrounds and experiences will enrich the discussions.

Please plan to watch the movie before joining the online discussion. It is available on Prime Video & on DVD.  Registration is free and required.

I Am Not Your Negro is a 2016 documentary film and social critique film essay directed by Raoul Peck, based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin’s recollections of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as his personal observations of American history. It was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards and won the BAFTA

Award for Best Documentary.
