"13th" Documentary Screening.

  • Starts: 5:00 pm on Friday, November 11, 2016
  • Ends: 7:30 pm on Friday, November 11, 2016
The 13th documentary is named after the 13th constitutional amendment, which abolished slavery except as “punishment for crime,” the doc uses archival footage and expert commentary to make the case that slavery hasn’t disappeared from the U.S. It is evolved into our modern system of mass incarceration. According to the Atlantic, it is gorgeous, evocative, and maddening exploration of words: of their power, their roots, their permanence. It’s about those who wield those words and those made to kneel by them. Labels matter, lets be purposeful in how we as public health professionals use them. We look forward to seeing each and everyone of you. Come hungry for content and food!
