The Prison University Project is engaged in an array of projects that document the intellectual and creative work of students, facilitate their civic engagement in the public sphere, and humanize the image of incarcerated people in the public imagination. The following pieces represent a sample of our students’ voices — a collection of ideas, experiences, hopes, and fears that reverberate beyond San Quentin’s walls.
