"13th" explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, with a focus on prisons. Following the screening, Ed Yohrka, director of communications and public policy for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Illinois, will lead a discussion about the effects of racial inequality and why people should care about it.
