Actor Explores School-to-Prison Pipeline In Klamath
Where you start in society often determines where you end up in society.
If you start poor, odds are good you'll end up poor... and maybe in prison, too.
The playwright and actor Anna Deavere Smith explores the situation in a one-person show, "Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education, The California Chapter."
It's about the school-to-prison pipeline that exists for many people, and Smith brings excerpts from the show to some rural communities, including to the Yurok reservation on Monday (Aug. 24). Admission is free.
She visits with the story behind the performance.
