In commemoration of Freedom Day, Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary & galvanizing documentary, titled after the 13th Amendment, will be shown. Refreshments will be served. 100 mins. Registration required.

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads, “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 progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity.  With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis. Refreshments will be served.  100 minutes.  Registration required.
