Notes From The Field

Drawn from interviews with more than 250 students, parents, teachers and staff caught up in America’s poverty to prison pipeline, Anna Deavere Smith’s Obie-Award-winning solo performance shines a light on a lost generation of American youth and exposes a justice system that pushes youth of colour living in poverty out of the classroom and into prison.
