MOVIE: “Broken on All Sides: Race, Mass Incarceration & New Visions for Criminal Justice in the US”
Columbia Friends Meeting House,
120 Pisgah Church Road, Columbia, SC 29203
The documentary centers around the theory put forward by many, and most recently by Michelle Alexander (who appears in the movie), that mass incarceration has become “The New Jim Crow.” That is, since the rise of the drug war and the explosion of the prison population, and because discretion within the system allows for arrest and prosecution of people of color at alarmingly higher rates than whites, prisons and criminal penalties have become a new version of Jim Crow. Through inter¬views with people on many sides of the criminal justice system, this documentary aims to answer questions and provoke questions on an issue walled-off from the public’s scrutiny.
Directed by Matthew Pillshcer.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
