Rikers: An Education through Film

Combining discussion with clips from our upcoming PBS documentary, we will explore the intersection between film, education and juvenile justice. Although our society has begun to discuss a "school to prison pipeline," this discussion often excludes the voices of those who suffer from juvenile incarceration. By giving a platform to a formerly incarcerated young man, we hope to ignite a conversation that will demonstrate how storytelling through a kid's lens can function as a learning device.
