"Powerful, infuriating and at times overwhelming, Ava DuVernay’s documentary 13th
will get your blood boiling and tear ducts leaking."

- Manohla Dargis (The NYTimes)


June 4th, 7:00 pm

13th

This screening is cosponsored by the
Dallas Peace & Justice Center

When the Thirteenth Amendment was signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1865 it granted freedom to slaves; however, it left a loophole. It did not grant the same rights to criminals. This particular clause has been used through history to create a new kind of slavery that largely targets African Americans and other minorities. 13th brings together activists, politicians and scholars to discuss the ramifications of this clause.

Join us for this important film. Its creator, Ava DuVernay, has done a wonderful job with this essential information and its Emmy award was well deserved.

The First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival

Every month, at 7:00 pm on the first Tuesday, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff screens a film focusing on an important social justice issue. We hope you'll leave inspired and ready to hit the road in your own quest for a better world.

The best way to make a difference in the world is to first learn how others have done so. Is there a film you'd love to see to inspire you? Perhaps you have that one movie that recharges you before a social justice battle. If so, please share with us, and we'll see about putting it on our list of films to show at the UUCOC First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival.
