The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee welcomes Raoul Peck, award winning film director, writer, and director of the famous French film and television school La Fémis, for a thought provoking and insightful discussion of his latest film, I Am Not Your Negro.  Peck will discuss the film, James Baldwin, and connect the Civil Rights Movement to the issues of segregation, education, and mass incarceration that Milwaukee and so many other places around the world face today.
