The documentary 13th sheds light on an inhumane clause in the 13th amendment of the United States constitution that essentially legalizes slavery through criminalization (though the 13th amendment outlawed slavery, it left a significant loophole).

Narrated by a diverse group of activists, lawmakers and social influencers, the film places a particular focus on the detrimental effects that the clause has had on the Black community, as well as how US corporations and multiple government administrations have had a hand in keeping the irrevocably damaging criminalization cycle alive in Black communities for decades.
