About this Event

Join award-winning filmmakers Lynn Novick & Sarah Botstein - whose film credits with Ken Burns include The Vietnam War, Prohibition, and The War - for a preview and discussion of their upcoming docuseries, College Behind Bars, premiering November 25 on MPT.

College Behind Bars explores the transformative power of education through the eyes of incarcerated men and women trying to earn college degrees and turn their lives around in one of the most rigorous and effective prison education programs in the United States – the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI). College Behind Bars is directed by Novick, produced by Botstein, and executive produced by Ken Burns.

Joining Lynn and Sarah will be formerly incarcerated BPI students featured in the film as well as representatives from the Goucher Prison Education Partnership (GPEP). Baltimore City Solicitor Andre Davis will offer opening remarks.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

GPEP is also a member of the Bard Prison Initiative’s Consortium for the Liberal Arts in Prison. To learn more about GPEP, visit www.goucher.edu/learn/goucher-prison-education-partnership.
