College Behind Bars — August 7

Odyssey Beyond Bars

The UW Odyssey Project, First Unitarian Society, and MOSES Team invite you to a viewing of College Behind Bars, a film by Lynn Novick, as part of the First Friday Film Series on August 7 at 6:30 p.m. Join us as we “explore the transformative power of education through the eyes of a dozen incarcerated men and women trying to earn college degrees — and a chance at new beginnings — from one of the country’s most rigorous prison education programs.” Following this online-only event, Peter Moreno, Odyssey Beyond Bars Director; Kevin Mullen, UW Odyssey Project Co-Director; Salimah El-Amin, producer of College Behind Bars; and Dyjuan Tatro, Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) alumnus ’18 and Government Affairs & Advancement Officer at BPI will join us for a conversation and Q & A.

This event is free and open to the public.
