Join First Congregational UCC, SURJ-DC and SURJ chapters from around the country for a screening and discussion of 13TH. More info on the program coming soon.
Ava DuVernay’s documentary “13TH” has the precision of a foolproof argument underscored by decades of frustration. The movie tracks the criminalization of African Americans from the end of the Civil War to the present day, assailing a broken prison system and other examples of institutionalized racial bias with a measured gaze. It combines the rage of Black Lives Matter and the cool intelligence of a focused dissertation.
The panel discussion will include:
Malkia Cyril, Executive Director of the Center for Media Justice
Grace Bauer, Executive Director of Justice for Families
Matt McGorry, star of “Orange Is The New Black” and “How To Get Away With Murder”
