About the film:
Jeffery Robinson’s documentary “Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America” takes the
audience through the United States’ history of anti-Black racism from 1619 to present, showing how the legacy of slavery and the myth of white supremacy impacts every aspect of our society.
From the historical connection of slave patrols to local police departments, through the
massacres of communities of freed slaves, to showing that many practices of modern-day slavery continued long after the Civil War, Jeffery Robinson challenges us to think about where we started as a country, where we are now, and where we want to end up.
He shines light on our all-but-forgotten past and leaves us with a shared responsibility to create a better country in our lifetimes.
