Special Screening of Academy Award-nominated "13TH"

Saturday, March 18, 2017 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Join us for a special screening of Ava Duvernay's new documentary, "13TH." The title is in reference 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.” Duvernay connects the horrors and lasting impact of slavery to the mass criminalization and prison system of today. Discussion of both the film and the societal issues it covers will follow the film screening.
