7:30-10:00pm
WCU Campus, CAC Theatre "13th" - A documentary by Ava DuVernay. The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery in the U.S. This film examines the way that America's prison system has become another form of slavery for American minority populations. From the profitability of prison labor to the development of private prisons, Ava DuVernay's documentary makes clear that the impact of our nation's laws, sentencing, and imprisonment have disproportionately affected communities of color. Join us as we screen the film that the Boston Globe called "one of the best movies of 2016." This program is a Welcome Fest event, and is co-sponsored by the Wichita State University Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
