CAMDEN — Jeffery Robinson, executive director of the Who We Are Project and star of the film “Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America,” will lead a “fireside chat” at the Rutgers University-Camden National Day of Racial Healing event on Jan. 16.
The event will start with a film screening at the Rutgers-Camden’s Campus Center Multipurpose Room at 10:45 a.m. with the Fireside Chat beginning at 12:45 p.m.
“Racial trauma is an ongoing consequence of historical trauma,” said a statement from Rutgers-Camden. “Through the sacred practice of storytelling, we begin to reconcile racial trauma by changing the narratives that have led to racism, racial injustice, inequities and discrimination. This National Day of Racial Healing, we invite our community to participate in an intimate fireside chat.”
The Who We Are Project is a nonprofit organization challenging the dominant narrative of the nation’s founding, demonstrating how anti-Black racism was and remains a central part of U.S. history, and works to promote education, discourse, healing, and change.
Robinson is the founder and chief executive officer of The Who We Are Project. The project seeks to help correct this false narrative that has emerged about racism in the United States and how reckoning with the true history is the only way for the country to move towards a path of racial equity and justice.
