In July 2013, I created and ran a summer seminar in philosophy for adjudicated and formerly incarcerated adults at John Jay College. The experience was amazing and fulfilling for all those who participated (students and professors). Below are lots of pics and videos from the experience.
Professor Cherry, Critical Thinking
Douglas Ficek, Themes of Existentialism
Fernando Zapata, Dewey on Habits & Conduct
After Class Dinner with Amir Jaima (Ph.D student) and Dr. Ficek
Students, along with Professor Cherry were on air guests for BET 106 and Park Trayvon Martin Case Special. Anthony W. and Ishmael made on-air comments while other students supported.
