A Mother’s Voice


“When a parent is incarcerated, the children pay for it,” said Bryan Stirling, a participant in the Riley Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative at Furman University. Stirling, director of the state Department of Corrections, and others in his Capstone project crew came up with a way for imprisoned mothers to “read to” their children by providing recordable books. Said Stirling, “I want to keep a connection between the offender and the family. Mainly what I wanted to do was let the children know that their parent still cared for them.” Read more about A Mother’s Voice in an article which appeared in The State by Salley McInerney.
