    At this frightening moment in American history—with a racist in the White House and amid rising levels of racial hatred—there is no more important writer than Baldwin.

    By Chris Hedges, 19.02.17
    Raoul Peck’s “I Am Not Your Negro” is one of the finest documentaries I have ever seen—I would have stayed in the theater in New York to see the film again if the next showing had not been sold out.

    This new development is coupled with the emergence of the Alt Right, the Trump movement, and the rise of fascist movements abroad.

    Renowned journalist and author Chris Hedges has embedded himself in what he calls “Christianized Fascism” and warns that this is the biggest danger we face under Trump.
