National Civil Rights Museum says
With 13th, director Ava DuVernay investigates mass criminalization and the prison industrial complex. The documentary depicts an era where African American inmates are forced into unpaid manual labor, convict leasing, and the profiteering from human bondage. Ratified in 1865, the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution abolished involuntary servitude "except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.” 13th links the prison system to the plantation. Join us for this screening and discussion that follows. Registration encouraged.
