DVD of the Week
This week's DVD of the Week is "I Am Not Your Negro"

  Based upon James Baldwin's unfinished book "Remember This House", this film examines race in America, and travels into the past to connect the Civil Rights movement to the present #BlackLivesMatter. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, this is an astonishing, hard-hitting, and challenging examination of race in the U.S.
