In light of the recent protests in support of the black lives matter movement, we are screening the documentary 13th by Ava DuVernay.

13th (100 min) is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava DuVernay. The film explores the "intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States;" it is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1865, which abolished slavery throughout the United States and ended involuntary servitude except as a punishment for conviction of a crime.

We will start the film at approx 18:00 followed by a discussion and reflection.

Updates: with zoom link will follow.
