Prisoners to debate Prison Officers in an intellectual debate


    A team comprised of prisoners will debate a team of Prison Officers tomorrow at the Port of Spain City Hall on the topic “Does every creed and race find an equal place in T&T?”

    This debate series is the product of a programme conceived three years ago by author and journalist Debbie Jacob, specially designed to help inmates work on their communication, research and presentation skills.

    Tomorrow’s event presents the opportunity for both groups engage in friendly, constructive intellectual battle.

    The prisoners’ “Team Intellect” is fresh off their second win against the University of Trinidad and Tobago debating team in early April.
