Item description for Prometheus's Torch: Shining a Light to the Future Through Literacy by Lorraine Cuddeback...
From the marble columns of the Parthenon, to the hardcover textbooks of today, the Prometheus myth has been told and retold to explain humanity's humble beginnings. The story is, on the surface, one about fire; a creation myth which accounts for humankind's evolution. But at the heart of the story are oppression and rebellion, defiance and revolution. Taken literally, every flame we tend to today can be seen as a descendent from that first torch of Prometheus; taken figuratively, we see that the light which Prometheus brought to us was enlightenment. The adult learners of The Learning Bank of C.O.I.L., Inc., in West Baltimore have come together to share their biographies, essays, poems, and stories. These accounts are accompanied by the stories of the people who work and volunteer at The Learning Bank exploring numerous perspectives on education and the privilege it brings.
