From the Prison Yard to Harvard Yard with Andre Norman

Andre Norman had a goal: Go to Harvard. But as an inmate in the Massachusetts prison system serving a 100-year sentence for serious crimes, he was told by everyone—fellow inmates, guards, family—that it was impossible. To not waste his time trying. When driving toward a goal or dream, there are times we hit up against incredible odds, or come face to face with those who try to talk us out of it. For many, the response is to quit. Give up. Andre tells his story of how he proved them all wrong. And how his belief and determination got him out of prison and into Harvard.
