Slavery By Another Name

13th
Screening of the documentary, 13th.

Documentary Description: The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary andgalvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution,which reads, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as apunishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shallexist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifyingclause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling Americanprison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potentmixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists,politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work ofgrand historical synthesis.
