|The Patch Works Art & History Center is proud to announce that — this month — we will begin our Georgia Humanities lecture series.|
This is a three-part series called The Patch Works Humanities Lecture Series: Lessons of Cabbagetown, Past and Present. Our first lecture features the brilliant minds of Bill Taft and Dr. Sarah Higinbotham, who will give an overview of their college-in-prison program, Common Good Atlanta. In the past 10 years, the program has offered over 4,000 hours of classes taught by more than 50 faculty from 6 Atlanta universities.
They will discuss ways that higher education prepares incarcerated men and women to return to their home towns and neighborhoods. In addition, alumni of their program will share their experiences as incarcerated students and as returning citizens.
This project is supported by Georgia Humanities, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, through funding from the Georgia General Assembly.
There is no cost to attend.
