Fra slaveri til politibrutalitet: USAs histore genskrevet i en episk film om racismens dybe rødder, og om at rykke dem op én gang for alle.

Black Lives Matter har bragt historien op til revision. De chokerende mord på George Floyd og andre sorte borgere har gjort opgøret med racismen i USA til et projekt, der både handler om rettigheder og om at genfortælle landet historie fra bunden. Og der er nok at rydde op i. Advokat Jeffery Robinson har kæmpet for sagen i 40 år, og da han i 2018 gjorde status i en tale for fulde huse i New York, var det en begivenhed, der selv skrev historie. En passioneret, personlig tale, som trods sit amerikanske udgangspunkt gav genlyd overalt i verden - og som her er rammen om en rejse gennem USA og det enorme, men unge lands voldsomme fortælling om sig selv.

From slavery to police brutality: US history is rewritten in an epic film about the deep roots of racism and about digging them up once and for all.

Black Lives Matter has brought history up for revision. The shocking murder of George Floyd and other black citizens has turned the confrontation with US racism into a project that is both about human rights and about rewriting the country’s history books from scratch. And there is plenty to clean up. The attorney Jeffrey Robinson has been fighting for the cause for 40 years, and when he took stock of his career in a speech in front of a full house in New York, the event itself went down in history. A passionate, personal speech, which – in spite of its American context – resonated all over the world, and which here provides the framework for a journey through the United States and the enormous but young country’s violent storytelling about itself.
