The German Stanford Association invites Ivy Circle members to “I am not your Negro” on Feb 18, 2021

In honor of Black History Month, Stanford is excited to announce a virtual screening of I Am Not Your Negro followed by a conversation between two Germany-based scholars of African American studies, Cedric Essi and Philip Crawford. Their discussion will explore Baldwin’s contributions and legacy on both sides of the Atlantic. I Am Not Your Negro is a film by Raoul Peck about the history of racism in the United States told through the life and work of James Baldwin, and our goal for the event is to celebrate the contributions of James Baldwin, Medgar Evans, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcom X to human rights, social justice, and diversity. On Feb. 18, we will begin screening at 18:00 CET, with the virtual conversation following immediately after the film from 19:45-20:15.
