13th - Racism in the U.S. Today

Sunday, December 3rd & 10th

10:30 am in the Community Center

Ava Du Vernay's galvanizing documentary about 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 with bracing lucidity using archival footage and interviews.

"13th" shall be shown in 50 minute segments over 2 Sundays to allow ample discussion time afterwards.
