What It's Like to Survive Being Shot by the Police
In 2012, Leon Ford was shot five times by Pittsburgh police officers during a routine traffic stop. “Those officers took something from me,” Ford says. “It’s not just the ability to walk—it’s something deeper.” In a new short documentary, Ford reflects on the trauma he experienced.

I Am Not Your Negro
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.
