The 40th Annual Clergy Institute Featuring Jeffery Robinson – Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America.

Thursday, May 13, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For over three decades, attorney (and now ACLU Deputy Legal Director) Jeffery Robinson has devoted his career to racial justice. The history Robinson imparts is not easy. It is not comfortable. But it is necessary. In the end, Robinson’s words are a call to arms. He empowers his audience to change the future, leaving them with a sense of optimism about what America could look like if we have the courage to change it.

In “Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America,” Robinson aims to help us do just that. From the historical connection of slave patrols to local police departments, through the massacres of communities of freed slaves, to the fact that the essential elements of the practice of modern-day slavery continued long after the civil war, Robinson challenges us to think about where we started as a country, where we are, and where we want to end up. His words lay bare an all-but-forgotten past, as well as our shared responsibility to create a better country in our lifetimes.
