Jeffery Robinson, former Deputy Legal Director of the ACLU, crisscrosses the U.S. speaking brilliantly on the legacy of slavery and racism, a 400-year history whose Constitutional underpinnings are reflected in every aspect of our nation’s economic, social, educational, and political reality. Accessible and engaging, Robinson interjects his family history to personalize the story: Growing up in Memphis, he was the beneficiary of his parents’ white friends, whose intervention allowed them to buy a home in a “good” neighborhood. The Kunstler sisters’ previous film, DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE, on their father (famed civil rights attorney William Kunstler), did not pull any punches. Nor does this one. Robinson acknowledges the irony of having two white women make a movie on racial injustice. His humor, passion, and commitment to imparting unadorned, painful truths are easily matched by their own.

Presented with support from the Richard Brick, Geri Ashur, and Sara Bershtel Fund for Social Justice Documentaries

Reviews

“Gripping. Burns with righteous anger and brilliant intelligence. This chronicle of racism is a long-overdue lesson well worth sitting for.”
– Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail

“Captivating. Should be part of the standard curriculum in every school in America.” 
– Michael King, The Austin Chronicle
