The 13th

The NW continues it’s commitment to “Coming to the Table,” hosting conversations about race with a three-part session around filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s 13th. Titled after the 13th amendment, which prohibited slavery.  With the exception of slavery as punishment for a crime, the film explores the intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States.

We will watch 3rd part of the documentary on November 17 at First Presbyterian Church of Germantown. The last session:

Northwest Region Continued Conversations

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

We will maintain our Coming to the Table format to enable personal sharing, listening and connection, while addressing one of their goals:  “Uncovering History: researching, acknowledging, and sharing personal, family, community, state, and national histories of race with openness and honesty.”
Directions and Parking: Summit is the large stone church on the corner, one block up from Lincoln Drive, on the corner of Westview. You can enter through the door on Westview (up the ramp or the large staircase), and walk through the gym. You may also enter across the lawn on Greene St., and go up one flight. There will be signs! Also, there are no meters or parking lot but parking is somewhat tight. There are usually spaces between Westview and Sherman, or at Carpenter and Greene in the Henry School parking lot. Or park near the bottom of Greene for some exercise!
