Join us for a lively and informative intergenerational conversation about the documentary 13th, hosted by the Bridging Generations Professionals Board.

13th explores the intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States; it is titled after 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 conviction of a crime. Combining archival footage with testimony from activists and scholars, director Ava DuVernay’s examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the country’s history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America. Watch this piercing, Oscar-nominated film on Netflix or free on YouTube (click here). Disclaimer: this film depicts disturbing subject matter.
