“What college does, it helps us learn about the nation,” said Rodney Spivey-Jones, a 2017 Bard College graduate currently incarcerated at Fishkill Correctional Facility in New York, in the docuseries College behind Bars. “It helps us become civic beings. It helps us understand that we have an interest in our community, that our community is a part of us and we are a part of it.”

View the four-part documentary film series College behind Bars on PBS through December 31, 2020.

On November 10, 2020, the Radcliffe Institute will hold an associated virtual program that focuses on students’ voices. Details will be announced soon.
