13th Movie PosterJoin the ACLU of Ohio to watch and discuss Ava Duvernay's four-time Emmy Award winning documentary, 13th. This screening will allow community members and ACLU staff to engage in a conversation about the prison industry, mass incarceration, and the systematic criminalization of African Americans.

This enlightening documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, and argues that mass incarceration is the mechanism for modern day slavery. Katrice Williams, policy associate for the ACLU of Ohio, and a community activist not yet determined, will lead a discussion after the screening and touch on themes of power, race, and culture.
