This week’s film is Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America (2021). Interweaving lecture, personal anecdotes, interviews, and shocking revelations, 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. If you choose to watch the movie before the discussion, it is available to rent or buy on Vudu, Amazon, and AppleTV; free on Netflix with subscription. Watch the trailer below:
