***Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone.

Stay Late in 8 presents Movie Night in the Larson Student Center!

Monday, October 10 from 11:00am -12:00 pm

Join us at this presentation to learn more about food insecurity, the stigma surrounding it, and ways we can all work together to address the problem.

Clancy Harrison is an internationally-renowned keynote speaker, food equity advocate, founder of the Food Dignity® Movement, TV/media contributor, host of The Food Dignity® Podcast, and registered dietitian. Her wise, heartfelt, and well-researched presentations challenge the judgments that stand in the way of improving everyone’s access to nourishing food. Her message gives rise to refreshingly simple strategies for how audiences can put her ideas for food equity (or what she calls Food Dignity®) into action to create real and lasting change.
