Texas Law ACS will be screening the documentary "The 13th" by director Ava DuVernay. The 13th Amendment to the Constitution 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 film covers the progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry.

Dinner will be served.

Specific audiences:
  • Texas Law students
  • Texas Law alumni
  • Faculty
  • Staff
Sponsored by:
