Former President Barack Obama said “The United States is home to 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of the world’s prisoners. Think about that.”

In light of the Black Lives Matter movement and in effort to share knowledge and information, this quick bonus episode of Queens of the Mines is made to discuss the importance of the Documentary 13th that was released on October 7, 2016. It is available on Netflix, or for free from Netflix  on YouTube.  The film is Not Rated  for some graphic scenes and images of violence.  This episode is solely based on my reflection of the film, I did not do this research myself. I highly encourage you to watch the film, I can not relay everything you need to hear in my own episode. So, I hope you watch it. 

13th explores over 150 years of the history of the incarceration and disempowerment of minority communities in America, showcasing the racial criminalization they have endured from the end of slavery to now.  It painfully explains the country's  messy racial history and provides  an easy to comprehend backdrop to the current state of racial violence and resistance.  It was directed by Ava DuVernay an American filmmaker and director and features leading experts,  scholars, journalists and politicians and activists, some of whom I will quote in this episode, including  Angela Davis  who said "13th is probably the most important movie you'll ever see. I have watched this multiple times and I intend on watching it more,  and every single American citizen should as well.  This information is so important. It is maddening, yet it’s presentation gives me hope.  

“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” 

“except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted”

Cinco de Mayo

Over the years, there has always been confusion about the orgin of Cinco de Mayo in the non-mexican communities, and today I hope to clarify a few things on that subject. The history of Cinco De Mayo unviels the importance of the landscape of North America as a whole, and, did you know, it was very first celebrated in our very own Gold Rush town of Historic Columbia?
