StudentCam is C-SPAN's annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think critically about issues that affect our communities and our nation. For the 2018 competition, we asked students to choose a provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it's important to them.

Notes from the filmmakers:
It is a popular belief that the 13th Amendment had ended slavery in America for good, but is it possible that slavery has been allowed to continue on in the form of mass incarceration of African Americans?
