Interweaving lecture, personal anecdotes, interviews, and shocking revelations, criminal defense and civil rights lawyer Jeffery Robinson draws a stark timeline of anti-Black racism in the United States, from slavery to the modern myth of a post-racial America. After many years as a practicing lawyer, Robinson started looking at our Nation’s background and was shocked by how deeply encoded white supremacy and the oppression of Black Americans is in that history. For the past 10 years, Robinson has been sharing what he learned. In WHO WE ARE: A CHRONICLE OF RACISM IN AMERICA, Robinson is asking all of us to examine who we are, where we come from, and who we want to be.
In Person Guests: Emily Kunstler, Sarah Kunstler
