[6:00pm] First Friday Film Series
Uniting for a Safe Inclusive Community - Manchester (USIC) continues its First Friday Film Series. In this series, USIC offers films and facilitates conversations that help deepen understanding of the experiences of communities in our country that are marginalized and oppressed. On April 5 at 6 p.m. at the Neighborhood Resource Center at 153 Spruce Street in Manchester, USIC will present the first half of the documentary 13th. Chronicling the history of racial inequality in the United States, 13th examines how our country has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African-American. The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution—“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States . . . ” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass incarceration and the prison industry in the U.S. is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. Join USIC for the screening of the first half of this extraordinary documentary. We will screen the second half in May in order to allow time for discussion after each showing. For more information, please contact USIC: manchesterCTunites@gmail.com.
