February 20, 2020 | 0 Comments

In celebration of Black History Month, C.A.R.E Learning Centre is getting set to hold a book signing with D. Neletha Butterfield for her book Education For The Soul on Friday, February 28 from 6.00pm to 10.00pm.

The event will include games, music, refreshments, reading sessions, wine testing, and an open mic, with books on sale for $30.

A spokesperson said, “Education is basically the soul of a community that is shared and passed on from one generation to another. If someone is going down the wrong path it is education that will and should turn them around.

“In her book, D. Neletha Butterfield highlights history, involvement, encouragement, teachings and experience in educating the inmates of the correctional facilities in Bermuda; the Senior Training School, The Female Prison [now Co-ed Correctional Facility], Prison Farm, and Casemates Prison [now Westgate Correctional Facility] from computer studies to African education studies and from mathematics and reading to the G.E.D. programme [high school diploma].

“She ventured on the prison educational journey in 1984 on the request of Mr. Edwin C. Wilson, first Educational Officer with her Majesty’s Prison as well as a former Commissioner of Prisons. Mr. Wilson in his wisdom contacted her and asked if she can assist in teaching at the prison facilities with the GED and computer programmes.

“She accepted and taught for approximately 20 years successfully assisting one hundred and fifty inmates in receiving their GED [high school diploma] and over three hundred inmates in receiving basic educational skills and computer training.

“In this book you will find appreciation messages, poems and letters from inmates, graduation programmes, letters of congratulations and thanks from the legislature and the community, newspaper articles and more on her role as the co-founder of Prison Fellowship, Chairman of the Treatment of Offenders Board and her account of an instructors’ day in the prison.

“She currently volunteers her educational services as she believes giving back is the key to her success behind the prison walls.”
