  • Norwich NAACP Introduces “Movies & Membership”

    Join us on

    Sunday, October 22

    for our first

    “Movies & Membership”


    Documentaries and films designed to educate, empower and entertain the Southeastern Connecticut community.


    Our first film is the documentary “13th” by Academy Award nominated director Ava DuVernay, which explores the weighty topic of mass incarceration, making the case that the American criminal justice system is, in essence, slavery by another name.

    The recommended audience for this documentary is 16 years of age (with parental supervision) or older.

    Our series will be shown at the Norwich Arts Center’s Donald L. Oat Theatre, 60 Broadway, Norwich, Connecticut.


    Admission is by Donation, and please note the recommended audience for each film.

    Entry is available from the first floor on Broadway, with parking available on Broadway and across the street from Norwich City Hall.
