A free, public screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary 13TH, examining the prison system in the United States and how it reveals the nation’s history of racial inequality.
Justified Art!, GSAFE, and the Center for Media and Democracy present a free, public screening of the acclaimed documentary 13TH by director Ava DuVernay. Centered on race in the United States criminal justice system, the film is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which outlawed slavery, unless as punishment for a crime. DuVernay’s documentary argues that slavery is being effectively perpetuated through mass incarceration.
Following the film, GSAFE’s Ali Muldrow will facilitate a talkback Q&A with Lisa Graves of the Center for Media and Democracy, who is featured in the film.
