Community Dialogs: With This Knowledge Screening and Panel Discussion

By Mount Tamalpais College | January 5, 2021

In December, we launched Community Dialogs, a public education program offering events on topics related to mass incarceration and higher education. This event series features guest speakers including students, our local community, and national experts; film and book discussion groups featuring Mount Tamalpais College faculty; and online workshops free of charge.

The first event was held virtually on December 1. We screened the premiere of With This Knowledge, a short documentary series following two former students on their reentry journey to over 150 community members. Film subjects Sumit Lal and Sajad Shakoor, and filmmaker R.J. Lozada discussed the film and their experiences of reentry, in conversation with board member Aly Tamboura.

A recording of the event is available below.
