Watch "13TH" — director Ava Duvernay's powerful, award-winning 2016 documentary detailing a gripping study of the lasting impact of the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution, and its influence on racial inequalities in America. Winner of the Emmy® for Best Documentary Feature and nominated for an Academy Award®, 13TH is a pointed, stirring and often overwhelming experience – a thought-provoking new take on the challenges of America’s criminal justice system. 13TH is currently available for free viewing on YouTube, courtesy of Netflix.

Inspired by Romare Bearden's "Stamping Ground", create your own collage using things you have around the house to show your neighborhood, or another favorite place. American artist Romare Bearden, developed his unique approach to collage in the 1960s, as seen in his 1971 Stamping Ground, that captures the richness of contemporary African American life in a New York neighborhood. When crafting your neighborhood collage, think about who lives there, what kind of buildings do you see, or what sort of plants start popping up this time of the year. Before you glue the paper down, try out arranging and overlapping the pieces in different ways.
