I wanted to share a photo and some upcoming events in my electives.
Two weeks ago students from St. Francis College’s Post-Prison program visited our Literature of Mass Incarceration class. The students, who are all community organizers and support leaders for justice involved individuals, spoke to us about the power of poetry and their individual experiences with transformative justice.
On Thursday, 11/14 in Literature of Mass Incarceration, the filmmaker Kevin Stelle will visit to screen and discuss a short film on the gang raids that took place in the Bronx in 2016, as well as recent prison strikes.
On Monday, 11/18, in Nature and Environment Writing the journalist Kalyanee Mam will Skype in to discuss her film Lost World, and research on contestations over land and water use in Cambodia.
