Movie Night: 13th Documentary

Sunday April 8 at 5:30p. Join us for a showing of the Netflix documentary “13th.” This event is co-sponsored by the Diocesan Dismantling Racism Commission

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation’s prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans. America makes up 5% of the world’s population, yet locks up 25% of the world’s prisoners. 13TH explores how we got here.

We will gather together to watch the film and snack on pizza provided by Holy Communion. The showing will wrap up with a facilitated discussion about the film. You are welcome to bring along a side salad or snack to share. You are also welcome to bring friends.

Notice: this documentary is rated PG-13 and may contain material that are disturbing to some audiences due to the subject of the film. We will have an alternative activity for younger children.
