Black History Month Film Screening and Student Panel – 13th

February 13, 2019

Black History Month Event Banner

Throughout the month of February, there will be various indie film screenings that showcase the artistic imagery and creative direction of Black film producers. Each film takes you into a world of fiction or truth exploring cultural narratives around sexual identity, social activism, political oppression, and personal freedom.

Ava DuVernay's most recent film, 13th, is a captivating documentary that outlines how slavery continued in America after the Civil War in the form of criminal punishment, eventually leading us to the crisis of mass incarceration and a faulty criminal justice system today. Panel discussion to follow screening.

All are welcome. Snacks will be provided.
