Documentary Screening & Panel Discussion
We invite you to join us for an interactive discussion and screening of the documentary “13th” directed by Ava DuVernay. This documentary examines why the US has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African American. The title of the film refers to the 13th amendment to the constitution: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
