Both Ava DuVernay’s 13th and Frederick Douglass’s narrative draw many similar parallels between the systematic oppression of black people in modern times and in the 19th century. The scenes of police brutality in 13th especially reflects Douglass’s influence on DuVernay’s perspective. In these scenes, we see black people violently, and sometimes fatally, attacked by the police, who are meant to protect people.

The type of segregation that is happening today is when a person or family chooses to move to a segregated area. They are practically forced out of their former town because they usually cannot afford bills and taxes and move to a town with lower bills.
The Dutch named places like Harlem (Haarlem), Brooklyn (Breuckelen) and, Hell gate (Hellegat).

Racial segregation has been a part of American society since the Reconstruction Era following the end of the Civil War.
