Webinar: Focus on Justice – Oct 29
Posted by Pulitzer Center on October 27, 2020
On Thursday, October 29, at 4:00pm EDT, please join the Pulitzer Center for a virtual performance and conversation with Liza Jessie Peterson, a self-described “artivist” who uses her work as an actress, playwright, and poet to advocate for incarcerated populations through both art and teaching.
In this intimate conversation, Peterson will present segments of her award-winning play, The Peculiar Patriot, and recent work, Do You Really Want to Know? Throughout, she will describe how experiences engaging with individuals in carceral systems and the school-to-prison pipeline have pushed her to make evocative, timely art that challenges assumptions. She centers the lived experiences of incarcerated people while firmly pulling audiences into her narratives.
