We host a preview of a special series of events to occur this weekend at Baltimore’s Centre Stage Theatre: Anna Deavere Smith presents Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education, The Baltimore Chapter. This new production is comprised of material collected through Smith’s interviews with more than 100 individuals in Baltimore who are affected by what has been commonly named the “school-to-prison pipeline.” Smith will present a reading of her work, followed by facilitated small-group discussions of how to be part of the effort to affect change. A Baltimore native known for her television and movie roles in The West Wing, Nurse Jackie, The American President, and Blackish, Smith will join me to talk about her life, Baltimore, and this new production.
