Race relations and prison reform are some of the most outstanding issues that need the light of justice in the U.S. today. It is our desire to help move the process forward through writing and education, safe, sensitive and open discussion, as well as supporting those who are already working at the forefront of these issues.
To those ends, we are presenting a screening of the Academy Award nominated documentary, 13th. Directed by Ava DuVernay (who also directed Selma, which was nominated for Best Picture in 2015 and won for best original song), 13th is named for the Thirteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The film makes the case that through the “criminal” clause of the amendment, mass incarceration today is a continued form of modern-day slavery.
We are proud to announce our panelists!!
