Troy Boys and Girls Club Black History Month Motivational Film Series: 13th

Please join us for a free film showing and discussion this Friday, February 10th @ 6:00 PM.

13th

Ava DuVernay’s 13th explores the mass incarceration and criminalization of African Americans over the past fifty years. It raises important questions about our country and society in the era since the glory days of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. The filmmaker views her documentary as a call to action:

After you see 13th, silence in this case is consent. You know all of this. You’re a forward-thinking person, you care about it. You can’t just walk out into the night after you see the movie…and do nothing about it.

I’m not saying you have to join a march. I’m not saying you have to push for legislation. I’m saying what this film talks about is the very way that we deal with each other in the everyday. It’s about our relationship to each other as it deals with race. So there’s a lot there to be done.
