In reviewing the new Netflix documentary 13th, about the "rebirth of American chattel slavery in the American prison system," Ijeoma Oluo wrote, "If you want to understand the anger and the mistrust that many black Americans have toward both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, please watch 13th. If you want to know why we are just as likely to shout down a Democratic rally as a Republican rally, watch 13th. If you want to know why your black friends might be rolling their eyes at your “I Voted” stickers on the grave of Susan B. Anthony, watch 13th. And if you want to understand why it must be black lives that matter, watch 13th." Today, you have the chance to watch 13th with Oluo herself, at this free screening that will be followed by a conversation about "racial reconciliation and systemic change."
