Synopsis by Tom Ciampoli

Ava DuVernay (Selma) directed this documentary, which examines the disproportionate number of African-Americans among those incarcerated in the U.S. The film includes interviews with prominent civil-rights activists and politicians, and examines the nation's legacy of racism via such events as the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the passage of Jim Crow laws in the South.
