Description:

Please join us as we screen 13th, Ava Duverney’s galvanizing documentary that examines the long history of racial inequality in the American criminal justice system. 

Following the screening, a discussion will be led by University of Maryland School of Law Professor Douglas Colbert and Eddie Conway.  Regarded as one of the longest-held political prisoners in the history of the United States, Mr. Conway maintained his innocence and was granted his release in 2014 after being imprisoned for nearly 44 years. 

Food will be provided.

This event is sponsored by the University of Baltimore’s chapters of the Black Law Students Association, American Constitution Society, and National Lawyers Guild.
