I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO (2016) - explores the history of racism in the United States through novelist, essayist, playwright, and poet James Baldwin's reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr, as well as his personal observations of American history. This film draws its inspiration from Baldwin's unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, and is a searing indictment of America's failure to rectify its shameful history of racial inequality.

GURRUMUL (2017) - Indigenous artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was one of the most important and acclaimed voices to ever come out of Australia. Blind at birth, music inspired by his community and country on Elcho Island in far North East Arnhem Land gave his life purpose and meaning. His breakthrough album Gurrumul got him noticed globally. This film is the portrait of an artist balancing that which mattered most to him while on the brink of global reverence.

In order to save the Songlines, he breaks with tradition and finds unexpected help from a world-famous musician to help amplify the songs to the world.

MURUNDAK: Songs of Freedom (2011) - This film follows the Black Arm Band, a gathering of Australia's finest Aboriginal musicians, as they take to the road with their songs of struggle, resistance and freedom.

I shall watch (or rewatch) all these films to gain a better understanding of this important topic. I highly recommend Gurrumul - a beautiful and talented man.
