I Am Not Your Negro Kindle Edition
Mass Market Paperback
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
I watched two men, coming from unimaginably different backgrounds,
whose positions, originally, were poles apart,
driven closer and closer together.
By the time each died, their positions had become virtually the same position.
It can be said, indeed, that Martin picked up Malcolm’s burden,
articulated the vision which Malcolm had begun to see,
and for which he paid with his life.
And that Malcolm was one of the people Martin saw on the mountaintop.
Medgar was too young to have seen this happen,though he hoped for it, and would not have been surprised;
but Medgar was murdered first.
I was older than Medgar, Malcolm, and Martin.
I was raised to believe that the eldest was supposed to be a model for the younger,
and was, of course, expected to die first.
Not one of these three lived to be forty. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
“A searing and topical indictment of racial prejudice and hatred in America that makes for uneasy viewing and is not easily forgotten. . . . Vividly intelligent.” —Hollywood Reporter
“A striking work of storytelling. . . . One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made. . . . This might be the only movie about race relations that adequately explains—with sympathy—the root causes.” —The Guardian
“Thrilling. . . . A portrait of one man’s confrontation with a country that, murder by murder, as he once put it, ‘devastated my universe.’… One of the best movies you are likely to see this year.” —The New York Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

These notes where then pulled together by Raoul Peck and resulted in the I Am Not Your Negro documentary.
It's a very quick read, for me I would prefer to watch the documentary, and I will do, however it did slightly build upon the Martin Luther King / Malcom X book that I read last year so it was worthwhile.
