The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery in the U.S. This film examines the way that America's prison system has become another form of slavery for American minority populations. From the profitability of prison labor to the development of private prisons, Ava DuVernay's documentary makes clear that the impact of our nation's laws, sentencing, and imprisonment have disproportionately affected communities of color. Watch the film that the Boston Globe called "one of the best movies of 2016."
This film showing is part of the Candid Conversations series of programs put on by the Wichita Public Library, the Wichita Police Department and at least a dozen community organizations.
