St. Peter's Racial Justice Committee encourages all to watch the documentary film Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America. The film presents facts about the history of racism in our country that everyone should know.
The film is produced by the Who We Are Project, which was founded by attorney and racial justice activist Jeffery Robinson. The organization is an outgrowth of a talk that Robinson has been giving for the past 10 years on the history of anti-Black racism and white supremacy in the United States. This talk forms the basis of the feature-length documentary film.
The Racial Justice Committee is hosting viewing events on Jan. 25 and Feb. 1. The first event drew 34 people from St. Peter's and around the Diocese. The group gathered in the undercroft at St. Peter’s to engage in the first hour of the two-hour film, followed by a pizza dinner and lively discussion of the sometimes startling facts presented in the movie.
Viewing and discussion of the second hour will take place Wednesday, Feb 1, 5-7 p.m. at St. Peter’s in Ladue. Everyone is invited. We strongly encourage you to RSVP to Charlie Claggett so he knows how much pizza to order.
If you missed the first hour, or viewed the first hour and will miss the second hour, the movie can be viewed in its entirety on Netflix. Just search for the movie title: Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America.
St. Peter's Episcopal Church is located at 110 N. Warson Road in Ladue.
