PVAMU Texas Juvenile Crime Prevention Center to Host Screening and Discussion with Playwright and Actress Anna Deavere Smith

PVAMU Texas Juvenile Crime Prevention Center to Host Screening and Discussion with Playwright and Actress Anna Deavere Smith
Posted By: Reginald Culpepper on October 04, 2022

The Texas Juvenile Crime Prevention Center at Prairie View A&M University announced today it would host a screening of “Notes from the Field,” a dramatization of an award-winning play by Anna Deavere Smith depicting the school-to-prison pipeline. A moderated discussion with Smith will follow the screening on Oct. 19.

“We are thrilled to host Ms. Smith for a screening of her powerful film and for our students to hear directly from Ms. Smith as she discusses America’s school-to-prison pipeline, which pushes underprivileged youth out of the classroom and into incarceration,” said Camille Gibson, interim dean of the College of Juvenile Justice and executive director of the TJCPC at PVAMU. The TJCPC is the only center of its kind in Texas that focuses on reducing juvenile delinquency and crime.

Debuting as a play in 2015, “Notes from the Field” was drawn from more than 250 interviews by Smith with students, parents, teachers and administrators caught in the school-to-prison pipeline. The play was adapted into a television movie by HBO, premiering in 2018. It tackles questions of race and class through first-person stories.
