Recap: College Behind Bars Screening

On October 6th, the LSU Ethics Institute kicked off its first event of the Fall semester with a virtual showing of the documentary College Behind Bars. With attendance reaching over 50 people, it was made clear that the topic of educational equity holds an important place in the minds of LSU students. Following the screening, Dr. Chris Wells (Philosophy Instructor) moderated a rich and robust discussion about topics ranging from prison reform, opportunities for folks currently in and out of the correctional system and the importance of creating an equitable environment for all who are seeking an education.
