Watch the movie on Netflix ahead of time, then come to St. Thomas on Wednesday, March 29th at 6:30 PM for a potluck soup supper and group discussion.

If you have no access to Netflix, Cal Cornwell will be having a showing of this film on Wednesday, March 22nd at 6:30 PM. To attend, it is necessary to RSVP to Contact Us. In the text body line, add “RSVP to Cal Cornwall’s Movie Night” and the church office administrator will forward it to Cal for follow-up.


Although the 13th amendment abolished slavery, it did not abolish slavery of prisoners. After the Civil War, there began the process of incarceration of Black men, which formed a new slavery. This documentary tracks how severe the condition has become, especially with for-profit prisons. Watch the official trailer for 13TH here.


If you have any questions or need special accommodations, please Contact Us.
