“One day I brought a CD with Nina Simone songs that echoed into the hall, bold and resonant. We listened in silence and the sun poured into the windows like a gold we all needed to wear that day. Why would we need such a treasure? I will say that even the darkest places let us get a glimpse of light.” — Tara Betts writing about teaching at Stateville Prison
