Jeff is also a captivating storyteller and teacher. Every time I hear Jeff speak, I learn something completely new or I see something from an entirely different perspective. He is as much a historian as a lawyer. And now one of his presentations is the basis of a feature-length documentary, "Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America." This film just premiered at SXSW last month.
Today, Jeff is the Director of the Who We Are Project. His goal is to correct the narrative about the history of white supremacy and anti-Black racism in America. The Who We Are podcast offers six episodes discussing the history of racism in our country, including voter suppression, mass prosecution, inequities in medical care, and discriminatory housing practices. As Jeff says, we "can't change our future if we don't understand our past." Listen here.
