CAMBA VIRTUAL DISCUSSION: 13th
Please join CAMBA to discuss Ava DuVernay's 2016 documentary film 13th, which explores the "intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States." This critically acclaimed film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special. 13th chronicles the history of racial inequality in the United States, highlighting how the country has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those being imprisoned being African-American. DuVernay argues that a prison-industrial complex which statistically imprisons black men disproportionately and allows for their disciplinary servitude, has taken advantage of America’s black population and brings into question if this system ultimately acts as a form of modern day slavery.
We invite you to come reflect on this profound documentary, discuss and debate discussion questions regarding the several themes throughout the film.
When: Sunday, November 15th, 6:00 - 7:00 pm
