Film Forum: 13th @ Silver Maples Retirement Community
May 22 @ 6:15 pm – May 22 @ 8:45 pm

Join us for a showing of 13th, a thought-provoking documentary that examines the inequalities associated with the United States’ prison boom. Directed by Ava Duvernay and named for the 13th amendment to the Constitution, the film connects slavery and historical discrimination such as Jim Crow laws to the present day mass incarceration of African Americans. The screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the film with fellow viewers. 

This screening of 13th is the first installment in our new program series, Film Forum. Once a quarter, the library will show noteworthy documentaries, movies, and other film adaptions to promote community dialogue around important present day and historical topics. All showings are free of charge.
