Jones on DuVernay's "13th"

Martha S. Jones, University of Michigan, here, advises that you “take off your historian’s hat” before watching "13th," Ava DuVernay’s film about mass incarceration, on Netflix.

But those of us who are not historians cannot ignore history, especially the history we have lived through, even if we haven't personally experienced the abuses depicted in 13th. Ms. Jones' essay is a worthwhile read not only for historians but also for those like me.
