13th Amendment/21st Century – 2020

In the shadows of the US twenty-first century society a pattern of oppression subverts the benefits of freedom for a large segment of the population. 13th by Ava DuVernay, outraged and angered me. Outraged at society for letting slavery still exist. Angry at myself for not knowing the facts or understanding ongoing pain experienced by black people in this country. Coming from white privilege, I must bear witness to racial injustice and work to eradicate it.
