We hope you will join us for a film screening and discussion with criminal defense and civil rights attorney Jeffery Robinson on Friday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the WFS Theater.
The film, Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America
, features Robinson and interweaves lecture, personal anecdotes, interviews, and surprising revelations as he draws a stark timeline of anti-Black racism in the United States. Described by critics as powerful, moving, and a "must-see," the film is a New York Times
Critic's Pick and was an audience award winner at the SXSW Film Festival.
We are thrilled that Robinson will be joining us virtually for a Q&A discussion after the film. He is founder and CEO of The Who We Are Project, a nonprofit organization working to change the narrative on our shared history of anti-Black racism in the U.S. Robinson has four decades of experience working on criminal and racial justice issues in his private practice as a lawyer, lecturing across the country, and then as a Deputy Legal Director and the Director of the ACLU’s Trone Center for Justice and Equality.
There will be a reception in the Java Nook before the film with light refreshments starting at 6:00 p.m. Please RSVP below if you are able to attend, and feel free to share the invitation with family, friends, and colleagues.RSVP HERE
