If we, a Black people, combined our collective econimic power, political power, and creative power we could chnage the world...or at the very least, our corner of it.

Thurgood Marshall (U.S. lawyer and Supreme Court justice, 1908-1993)

I wish I could say that racism and prejudice were only distant memories. We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust… We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better

You may think you know all there is to know about this part of American history. This series fills in some blanks and tells this history from the people who lived it. We will look at how this part of African American history has impacted, and continues to impact, the lives of African Americans in America.

The first of many UNCOMFORTABLE community conversations

We will be showing the film 13th 


The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary 13TH refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.
