Ava DuVernay's gripping documentary "13th" is a must-see for anti-racist activists in the current climate of bigotry. The film resonates with the Black Lives Matter protests demanding accountability for the unjust racial profiling and killing of Black and Brown people by police in the U.S.
Learn how the “anti-slavery” 13th Amendment is actually used to criminalize and incarcerate Blacks. Join a discussion of what should be done to end the prison industrial complex and its exploitation of captive labor.
Door Donation: $3-5. Snacks available for small donation.
