Watch: Netflix Documentary ’13th’ explores Constitution, Slavery and Mass Incarceration

13

trouver The 13th Amendment of the United States Constitution states:

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, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Although the 13th Amendment abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, little attention has been given to the clause “except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted.”

That is, until now.

In the Netflix Documentary “13th,” director Ava DuVernay examines the issue of mass incarceration using footage and testimony from leading scholars and activists.

The full feature film is made available by Netflix on YouTube, and an educational guide for teachers is available.
