Event Description:

Please join the DEI Division for a breakfast event on Thursday, June 23 to discuss the documentary film '13th'. We take the opportunity to reflect, as part of our University celebrations of Juneteenth, on the ways that freedom is still denied to many. In this documentary, directed by award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom. The film's title comes from the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1865, which abolished slavery throughout the United States and ended involuntary servitude except as a punishment for a crime. Participants are encouraged to watch the documentary before attending this event. The film is available on Netflix, and DVD copies are available to borrow from Grasselli Library and all local public library systems. (A few clips from the film will be shown during the event for those who are unable to watch it beforehand. )
