Film Screening: 13th at Villard Square

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 - 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Categories: Educational Interest

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." 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.

Location: Villard Square Library Community Room
