From the St. Thomas Aquinas College website:
St. Thomas Aquinas College in partnership with Hudson Link presents: A Special Screening and Panel Discussion on “First Degree” a PBS documentary about college inside Sing Sing Prison. How it affects those incarcerated, their families, the educators who teach them, and why we should care.

FIRST DEGREE is the story of the men of Hudson Link, an organization created by incarcerated individuals that provides a full college degree through local universities. The men and the results are so stunning, they have to be seen to be believed.
