Jeffery Robinson had one of the best educations in America. He went to Marquette University and Harvard Law School and has been a trial lawyer for over 40 years. In 2011, Robinson began raising his then 13-year-old nephew and, as a Black man raising a Black son, struggled with what to tell his son about racism in America. And when he started looking at our Nation’s history, Robinson was shocked by what he found. For the past 10 years, in community centers, concert halls, houses of worship, and conference rooms across America, he has been sharing what he learned. In WHO WE ARE: A CHRONICLE OF RACISM IN AMERICA, Robinson faces his largest audience, asking all of us to examine who we are, where we come from, and who we want to be. Interweaving lecture, personal anecdotes, interviews, and shocking revelations Jeffery Robinson draws a stark timeline of anti-Black racism in the United States, from slavery to the modern myth of post-racial America.
