Pioneering director and writer Raoul Peck is known for pushing boundaries, using film to tackle global historical events and challenging subject matter while still engaging audiences politically, artistically and socially. A thought leader of global proportions, Peck's films courageously and effectively examine complex problems associated with power, justice and leadership.Peck's Oscar nominated documentary on James Baldwin, "I Am Not Your Negro," is a moving memoir that gives audiences a historical perspective of identity, injustice and deconstruction of white privilege and race in America, while reflecting on the lives of human rights giants: Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Medger Evers, three African American leaders who were murdered in their prime.
