Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America

Interweaving lecture, personal anecdotes, interviews, and shocking revelations, in Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America, criminal defense/civil rights 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.

He takes a look at a law passed in 1669 that stated, "An enslaved person's death while resisting a master is not a felony." Robinson points out that if you think of videos you've seen in the past 10 years, with Black people being chased down and murdered, you'll realize: "It's still not a felony."
