For the past year and a half, Natacha Nsabimana, Heyman Center Public Humanities Fellow (2016 - 2017), has been working with Columbia University's Justice-in-Education Initiative at the Rose M Singer Center at Rikers Island. Nsabimana will reflect on the experience of teaching “inside” as well as learning from it. More than a presentation, the talk is an open invitation to engage with issues surrounding mass incarceration and criminal justice reform.
