AVA DUVERNAY. 13TH

Netflix notes: Ava DuVernay's examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the country's history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America.

This piercing, Oscar-nominated film won Best Documentary at the Emmys, the BAFTAs and the NAACP Image Awards.

2. You're very welcome, elleng!

It's reminder of the long misery that this year came from, and the fight for equality that we all must continue.

4. If your time is short, start at 42:00 for the history of the latest issues of the Black community.

This sequence provides the race context of the murder of Fred Hampton around the time shown in Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7, and how Angela Davis' activism came from the Montgomery church bombing shown in Spike Lee's Four Little Girls, and the 40-year old corporate creation of ALEC, first evidence of corporate writing of U.S. laws that monetized racist corporate mass incarceration.
