It’s movie night at SMYAL, and this month we’re watching “13th” in honor of Black History Month.
About the movie: 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. 13th is a thought-provoking documentary about how the 13th Amendment, which formally abolished slavery, led to mass incarceration in the United States. Learn about how history impacts us today. We’ll watch the film and have a discussion about it on Dsicord.
