facebook.com/events/650628941814890/

We will be starting the movie at 7 pm

We will be showing this oscar-nominated documentary from the director of Selma and then there will be a panel discussion about it as well as time for others attending the event to also share their thoughts.

The panel will consist of Chas Moore representing Austin Justice Coalition; Fatima Lsdfg Mann, reperesenting Counter Balance: ATX; Darwin Hamilton, representing Reentry Advocacy Project; and Njera Keith, representing Black Sovereign Nation.

White Allies of Racial Equity, a church group that works to combat racism while partnering with Black Lives Matter Austiin, Austin Justice Coalition and Undoing White Supremacy Austin, will sponsor the event.

The event is open to the public and I hope some members of those groups and others can join us.

Wikipedia describes the film this way: «13th is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava DuVernay. Centered on race in the United States criminal justice system, the film is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which outlawed slavery (unless as punishment for a crime). DuVernay's documentary opens with the idea that 25 percent of the people in the world who are incarcerated are incarcerated in the U.S. and argues that slavery is being effectively perpetuated in the U.S. through mass incarceration. 13th has garnered acclaim from film critics»

Child care will be made available
It will be close-captioned.

I will post more information as the date becomes closer
