The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County’s Economic Social Justice Action Team will present the documentary 13th on January 16th, Thursday, at 4 pm.

This film explores the economic history of slavery and post-Civil War racist legislation and practices that replaced it as “systems of racial control” and forced labor from the years after the abolition of slavery to the present. The director, Ava DuVernay enlists scholars, activists and politicians to analyze the intersection of economics and racism leading to the criminalization of African-Americans and the U. S. prison boom.

About the Movies that Matter Series: The film is part of the UUFDC’s monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. The free screenings are followed by a discussion. The series invites consciousness and intellectual inquiry, which is philosophically in tune with Unitarian Universalists beliefs. The UUFDC Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim.
