This Netflix documentary documents the transition of state oppression from slavery -> jim crow / segregation -> mass incarceration.

It is very well made and insightful. With lots of interviews of different experts in these areas.

It really shows how central race has been throughout the history of the United States. Though sometimes it is obscured, politicans are often speaking in coded racial language to other white people. It’s always been the same fight. #blacklivesmatter

We did wish it had more action steps at the end. We were feeling really sad and overwhelmed. Some next steps could have helped from feeling just demoralized.

5 stars!
