13th

A film of great importance in our country today, followed by a discussion and Q&A with community leaders.

An in-depth look at the U.S. prison system and how it reveals the nation’s history of racial inequality. 25% of the people in the world who are incarcerated are incarcerated in the U.S. although we have just 5% of the world’s population. “13th” charts the explosive growth in America’s prison population; in 1970, there were about 200,000 prisoners; today, the prison population is more than two million.
