People in class houses shouldn’t throw stones, WHO WE ARE: A CHRONICLE OF RACISM IN AMERICA

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

Headlines read: “Palace Paralyzed” about the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry disclosures from the Harpo Productions Oprah Winfrey interview on CBS that shook the world (of privilege). But America, these United States, that broke from the UK have no judgments to make on that situation once you see WHO WE ARE: A CHRONICLE OF RACISM IN AMERICA. It is a frank exploration of the unspeakable for many, in relatable terms for all. March 19, there is a special event planned around this film.

Watch the trailer here first, then find out all the information below about this searing look at the American Founder story. It’s about how we inherited a legacy that is worth understanding in order to reconcile ourselves as citizens of this great diverse country.

Jeffrey Robinson says the unspeakable in relatable terms

March 19th at 6pm CT
Nō Studios x SXSW presents: 'Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America' Q&A. This sessionis  moderated by Eugene Hernandez, and features Jeffery Robinson, Emily Kunstler, Sarah Kunstler and Tami Sawyer.

WHO WE ARE: A CHRONICLE OF RACISM IN AMERICA speaks volumes
ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jeffery Robinson’s groundbreaking talk on the history of U.S. anti-Black racism is interwoven with archival footage, interviews, and Robinson's story, exploring the enduring legacy of white supremacy and our collective responsibility to overcome it.

Learn more about Jeffrey Robinson -Jeffery Robinson (Producer/Writer) is a deputy legal director and the director of the ACLU Trone Center for Justice and Equality, which houses the ACLU's work on criminal justice, racial justice, and reform issues. Since graduating from Harvard Law School in 1981, Jeff has four decades of experience working on these issues and has tried over 200 criminal cases to verdict. As a public defender in Seattle, he represented indigent clients in state and federal court and has represented a broad range of clients in private practice. Robinson was one of the original members of the John Adams Project where he worked on the behalf of one of five men held at Guantanamo Bay charged with carrying out the 9/11 attacks. In recent years, he has traveled the country speaking hard truths in a groundbreaking talk on racism in America. Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America is based on this talk.

Filmmakers: Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler -Emily Kunstler (Producer/Director/Editor) and Sarah Kunstler (Producer/Director) are the founders of Off Center Media, a documentary production company dedicated to racial justice and social change. Their film, William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe (Sundance '09, POV/PBS), was shortlisted for the Best Documentary Academy Award.
