Anna Deavere Smith Notes From The Field: The California Chapter

Comments are closed.

As part of Anna Deavere Smith’s new piece Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education – the California Chapter I was one of 20+ facilitators who led nightly discussions culled from the ideas in the play. The conversation - considered Act Two - was designed to bring the Berkeley Repertory Theatre audience further into the topic of the school to prison pipeline. Created by Youth Speaks, in collaboration with ADS Pipeline, the 25-minute writing workshop challenged the audience to confront themselves about their connection to the complex issues of race and incarceration, and commit to a small or large action that will lead us all towards a changed future.
