Next month the Lewis & Clark Community College Diversity Council will team up with the organizers of Black History Month to present a special program.  On Wednesday, February 11 at 2pm in the Benjamin Godfrey Chapel the Prison Performing Arts organization will offer a presentation of “Coming Home,” which features actual inmates on stage portraying characters focused on reentering society after being imprisoned. 

Diversity Council Chairman Peter Hussey tells The Big Z Prison Performing Arts is a 22-year-old multi-discipline literacy and performing arts program that serves incarcerated adults and children in the St. Louis area.
