Baldwin’s Nigger

In his first film, Horace Ové directs a striking, verité snapshot of writer, James Baldwin, at his sharp-witted best: conversing with civil rights activist, Dick Gregory, as they address a group of radical Caribbean students in 1960s London. The two discuss the Civil Rights Movement and black experience and identity in both Britain and the USA.
