Learning at Lunch - "Incorrigible" a Sneak Peek!
The Lucy Burns Museum at the Workhouse Arts Center is proud to present Learning at Lunch, a series illuminating aspects of the former prison’s 91-year history. Each month we tackle a topic from our complicated past. After a brief 30-minute talk, presenters answer audience questions, and all attendees are invited to visit the museum following the program. Table seating will be available and attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch; snacks and beverages available for purchase.
A New York Times Op-Docs is an Oscar-winning series of short documentary by independent filmmakers. Incorrigible centers around Sidney Davis, a former inmate of the Lorton Reformatory who used his time incarcerated towards rehabilitation through programs at the prison. Davis worked with prison management to bring the Special Olympics and other programs onto prison grounds, helping to rejuvenate his fellow inmates, mold their character, and prepare them to return to society. Join filmmaker AJ Cabbagestalk as he screens the short version of his documentary and answers audience questions.
