13TH,’ the Journey From Shackles to Prison Bars Film Screening & Discussion
 
This month, for our monthly women’s circle we’re screening and discussing 13TH,’ the Journey From Shackles to Prison Bars. Director Ava DuVernay’s takes an unflinching, well-informed, and thoroughly researched look at the American system of incarceration, specifically how the prison industrial complex affects people of color. 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. How does the prison industrial complex affect the lives of Black women, and what are its intersections with family violence? Join us for a thought-provoking film, and a robust conversation!
 
CONNECT’s monthly Women’s Circle is a free and open discussion forum for empowerment, support, healing, and liberation.
 
All who identify as female are welcome!
