Free Film Screening: June 4th: "13th"

First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival
Presents:

13th



 June 4th, 7:00 pm
Doors open at 6:30pm

This screening is cosponsored by the
Dallas Peace & Justice Center


 The movie is frankly exhausting, with too much information (and too many brilliant interviewees) to do justice to here. You simply need to see it.
David Edelstein (Vulture)


When the Thirteenth Amendment was signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1865 it granted freedom to slaves; however, it left a loophole. It did not grant the same rights to criminals. This particular clause has been used through history to create a new kind of slavery that largely targets African Americans and other minorities. 13th brings together activists, politicians and scholars to discuss the ramifications of this clause.

Join us for this important film. Its creator, Ava DuVernay, has done a wonderful job with this essential information and its Emmy award was well deserved.
