I just got done watching the documentary "13TH" on Netflix which is also available on Youtube, the whole movie is for free to watch if you don't have netflix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krfcq5pF8u8
When Ahavati recommended, I wasn't sure if I could watch it since this whole week the horrific news have taken over our hearts and minds, pulling emotions in every direction but once I started watching I couldn't stop. It's such a well produced narrated Doc delivering history and connecting critical periods with background stories that have gone unnoticed to all of us seeing and hearing on the surface, or worse yet; manipulated in delivering the truth.
It's gut wrenching to realize that we didn't know anything when we thought we knew.
One of the most profound lines at the beginning of the movie which sets the stage is:
"We are the products of history that our ancestors chose, if we're white.
If we are black, we are the products of history that our ancestors most likely did not choose,
yet here we are all together, the products of that set of choices
and we have to understand that in order to escape from it."
You will never look at things the same way again, after watching this!
