Thank you to everyone who came out on September 17, 2017, as the College of Charleston’s Race and Social Justice Initiative, the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture, and the South Carolina League of Women Voters presented a free screening of Ava DuVernay’s award-winning documentary 13th.

Following the screening, a panel featuring Dr. Lisa Brock, the Race and Social Justice Initiative Fall 2017 Scholar in Residence and Academic Director of the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership at Kalamazoo College, Dr. Stacey Patton, author of the Charleston County Racial Disparities Report and professor of global journalism and communications at Morgan State University, and Susan K. Dunn, the legal director of the ACLU of South Carolina, discussed the state of social justice, advocacy, and the criminal justice system in the Lowcountry and beyond. Big thanks to David Rothmund, the Race and Social Justice Initiative Graduate Assistant for live streaming the event. Watch, share, and be informed by the great perspectives presented!
