March 12, 2020: 13th
Join us for screening of 13th. The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis. This program is free, however, tickets are limited.
Please note: Membership cards will not be accepted in lieu of tickets. Tickets are required and we encourage you to purchase them in advance. If tickets are still available on the day of the program, they may be purchased at the Box Office prior to your arrival at the Chao Lecture Hall.
