In the fall 2017 semester a group of students in Dr. Sharon Virgil’s Literary Analysis Class [ENG 1112] participated in the Exchange for Change project, “Connecting Sentences.”

This project involved a collaboration between BC students and a select group of inmates in Ms. Shawnette Somner’s [Education Officer, Westgate Correctional Facility] English class. The idea behind the project, Dr. Virgil says, is to “create a public space for inside voices.”
