I had the privilege of speaking to students at the MD Dept of Corrections – Jessup a maximum security prison. Yes these are inmates earning degrees from Goucher College as part of their Prison Education Partnership (GPEP) program. The class was Black Psychology. For 2.5 hours I was able to talk with 24 students who are trying to better their lives even though some may never be released.

For me, this was a life changing moment. There’s a lot of talk in the world about how we can improve society but rarely are we taking actions to improve society. Too much talk not enough action. I encourage all of you to take action to improve your community. If you’re in MD please check out the below link and see how you may be able to help. http://www.goucher.edu/…/goucher-prison-education-partners…/
