Viewing of 13th

Free viewing of the movie “13th” named for the 13th constitutional amendment which abolished slavery. The film, produced by Ava DuVernay and now nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, makes the case that slavery hasn’t disappeared from the U.S., but has evolved into our modern system of mass incarceration. There will be a discussion afterward led by Corrine Witherspoon,  Multicultural Affairs coordinator at UC Blue Ash College.
