Movie/Podcast of the week

This week's podcast recommendation:  

Code Switch (NPR)

Code Switch is a race and culture outlet and a weekly podcast from American public radio network NPR. Hosted by journalists of color, the podcast tackles the subject of race head-on. They explore how it impacts every part of society — from politics and pop culture to history, sports and everything in between.

This week's movie recommendation


Plot: Filmmaker Ava DuVernay 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. The film explores the "intersection of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States;" it is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1865, which abolished slavery throughout the United States and ended involuntary servitude except as a punishment for conviction. 

It is available  on Netflix and for free on YouTube (Netflix account)  and -
