MacArthur Award winner Anna Deavere Smith turns her attention to “the school-to-prison pipeline” and performs striking portraits culled from interviews she conducted with nearly 150 individuals in Northern California and elsewhere in the nation, affected by the pipeline’s devastating policies—capturing the dynamics of a rapidly shifting social issue through her trademark performance technique.
