  • Black History Month Screening and Discussion of 13th

    Feb 25th, 2017
    2:00pm - 4:00pm
    Memphis Brooks Museum of Art | Free.

    This extraordinary film by Ava DuVernay centers on the language of The 13th Amendment of the Constitution, which abolished slavery, but simultaneously provided the structure for black people to be imprisoned with impunity.

    DuVernay connects America's dependance on the enslavement of black bodies to our present, providing a searing argument that mass incarceration and police involved shooting are but an extension of our violent racial past. 

    Sponsored by The Shelby County Public Defender's Office and the Ben F. Jones Memphis chapter of the National Bar Association.
