JOIN OUR PRISON PROJECT TEAM FOR MOVIE SCREENING

The Kadampa Center's Prison Project Team will host a screening of the movie, The 13th, beginning at 7:00 pm, Thursday, Feb. 16.

The movie is a provocative mix of archival footage and testimonies from activists, politicians and historians. It examines why the US has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African American.

The title of the film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which states: "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."

Following the movie, the Prison Project Team will lead a discussion and talk about what is being done in both prisons as part of the re-entry effort in Wake County. View movie trailer.

"Fill your heart with love today
Don't play the game of time
Things that happened in the past
Only happened in your mind
Only in your mind-forget your mind
And you'll be free-yea'
The writing's on the wall...
Gentleness is everywhere
Fear's just in your head
Only in your head
So forget your head
And you'll be free...
Gentleness clears the soul
Love cleans the mind
And makes it free!!"  ~ David Bowie
