The Diversity and Professionalism Committee presents Ava DuVernay’s Thirteenth. It is a documentary that delves into the issues of race, civil rights, and mass incarceration. Manohla Dargis of the NY Times calls it, “Powerful, infuriating and at times overwhelming, Ava DuVernay’s documentary 13th will get your blood boiling and tear ducts leaking.”
We will be screening the movie at 4:30pm in the McKernan Auditorium and then we will be having a panel discussion at 6:30pm to follow. Please join the panel of legal minds for a full frank discussion of the core issues.
