On Wednesday, April 14 at 6 p.m., Superior Public Library will host an online viewing and discussion of the 2016 documentary, “13th.” This award-winning film is directed by Ana DuVernay (Selma) and explores the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation’s prisons are disproportionately filled with African-Americans.

To view this film together, we’ll use Teleparty, a browser extension that allows participants to synchronize their video streams and participate in a chat discussion during the film.

Requirements:

  • You will need your own Netflix subscription in order to participate.
  • Before the event, you’ll need to download the free “Teleparty” browser extension to either Chrome or Microsoft Edge. https://www.netflixparty.com/
  • Teleparty will not work on mobile devices such as smartphones–you’ll need to participate on a laptop or desktop computer.
  • To receive a link to the Teleparty, you’ll need to register in advance by emailing mehlel@superiorlibrary.org. A link to the Teleparty will be emailed to you 15 minutes before the movie begins.
