Join the Center for Health Equity Transformation (CHET) as we discuss Ava DuVernay’s film titled 13th. We hope you can connect with us virtually for a facilitated discussion moderated by Soledad A. McGrath, Executive Director of the Northwestern Neighborhood & Network Initiative (N3).What's the documentary about?

13TH is an in-depth look at the prison system in the United States and how it reveals the nation's history of racial inequality. Combining archival footage with testimony from activists and scholars, director Ava DuVernay's examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the country's history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America. This piercing, Oscar-nominated film won Best Documentary at the Emmys, the BAFTAs and the NAACP Image Awards.

US Rating: TV-MA For mature audiences. May not be suitable for ages 17 and under.
