Juneteenth: 13th by Netflix
June 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm MST
The Tucson Black Film Club presents for Juneteenth: 13th by Netflix on Saturday, June 17, 2017, 1-4 p.m. at The Dunbar Cultural Center. In 2014, director Ava Duvernay made the acclaimed film Selma and in 2016 she produced yet another great film — 13th, a fascinating documentary about a “loophole” in the constitution that prohibited slavery but left the door open for alternative slavery in another form — imprisonment. It seems almost unbelievable but the facts of how this has played out are riveting. The Tucson Black Film Club presents 13th on the Juneteen anniversary. No American should miss this! A lively discussion will follow the screening. Donations are accepted for screenings and everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be served. Contact Debi Chess Mabie at (847) 312-9982 for more information.
