“13TH,” –  http://uk.filmtrailer.com/cinema/52148/13th
16
 – Synopsis: The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary 13TH refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis. Additional Comment: Describes and shows in graphic detail the causes, results, and financial ties to corporations of the mass incarceration of black people, mostly males. Very powerful. (Currently available on Netflix)

Living in the Tension: The Quest for a Spiritualized Racial Justice, by Shelly Tochluk,   http://shellytochluk.com/living-in-the-tension/  About “Living In The Tension” – Connections between spirituality and activism are evident within many social justice movements. Often unconsidered, however, is how race plays a role in our beliefs, actions, and collaborations. What happens when our spirituality results in a failure to notice racial dynamics? Conversely, what happens when we focus only on race? What tensions arise when we pay attention to race and spirituality simultaneously?
