Students and community members are invited to watch the immensely important documentary, 13th, on Friday, Oct. 13. Filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation’s prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans.
The movie will be shown on the green space at the corner of West Baltimore and North Poppleton streets at 7 p.m. The film will be projected with the support of student groups at the School of Social Work, and Shorty’s Bootleg BBQ. Shorty’s also will be providing food. Donations are strongly suggested.
Pack chairs, blankets, and picnic snacks for the viewing.
