About “13th, From Slavery to Mass Incarceration”
A screening of the award-winning film 13th directed by Ava DuVernay, director of Selma.
Film critic Wendy Ide of the The Guardian says, “There is something bracing, even exciting, about the intellectual rigor that Ava DuVernay brings to this documentary about the prison system and the economic forces behind racism in America.
The film takes its title from the 13th amendment, which outlawed slavery but left a significant loophole.
