In Netflix’s thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom. Learn about the policies and cultural changes that took place going back as far as the 1800’s and how they influence our lives today. Following the screening, join us for a panel discussion with community leaders to connect themes from the film to our Portland community. On January 19th, The Armory, in collaboration with The Ghostlight Project, joined over 500 theaters across the country and pledged a commitment to our community: we pledged that the theater would continue to be a safe space for productive civic conversation. We’re living up that that commitment with monthly community conversations, where we’ll bring in experts on relevant topics, and open the mic up for you to share your story as well.
