Following a year when we as a nation confronted the racism within our many institutions, we invite you to view Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America Deputy Legal Director Jeffery Robinson’s powerful and groundbreaking talk on the history of U.S. anti-Black racism interwoven with archival footage, interviews, and Robinson’s story, exploring the enduring legacy of white supremacy and our collective responsibility to overcome it.
