On March 7, OSI-Baltimore and the Baltimore City Office of the Public Defender will present a FREE screening and discussion of Ava DuVernay’s landmark documentary “13th,” which looks at racial disparities in the criminal justice system as an ongoing form of slavery (officially outlawed by the 13th Amendment), as part of OSI’s Talking About Race series.

After the screening, there will be a discussion with Nkechi Taifa, advocacy director for criminal justice at Open Society Foundations and Walter Lomax, executive director of the Maryland Restorative Justice Initiative.

The event starts at 6:30 pm and will be held at the University of Baltimore’s Moot Court Room, 1420 N. Charles Street.

This is a FREE event, but registration is requested. Register here.
