Reviews

  • "Robinson is an incredibly compelling speaker with a personal stake in the topic. He finds a way to make the story feel specific and personal without either making the audience feel bad about themselves or falling too much into personal interpretation."
    - Seventh Row
  • "Robinson is a precise, empathetic and informed speaker and a righteous man who, in sisters Emily and Sarah Kunstler's documentary, is every teacher you might have ever wished for as a student, but who deserves a larger stage."
    - Screen International
  • "The pains of slavery are alive and well in American culture because of our willed ignorance. One might say, it's who we are. "
