About Notes From The Field:
Launched in 2012, The Anna Deavere Smith Pipeline Project is a call to action. It draws attention to youth who, as a consequence of racism and lack of resources, are vulnerable to becoming embroiled in cycles of incarceration. When Smith was made aware of what is described as “the school to prison pipeline,” she set out to conduct more than 250 interviews about race, inequality, and disciplinary practices across the U.S. and wrote a one-woman play, Notes From The Field.
