Join us Thursday, January 16th for a fascinating and important evening with other KBTC members, friends and special guests for a free screening of the powerful film, College Behind Bars.

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.

The event will feature a screening of scenes from the film and a panel discussion.
