Actress & Playwright Anna Deavere Smith Discusses Her Time With The Yurok on KHSU's Home Page
"My time in Klamath on the river, with the tribe, was one of the most transformative experiences of my life." Award-winning actress Anna Deavere Smith, best known for her roles on The West Wing and Nurse Jackie, spoke with Danielle Orr on KHSU's Homepage about her new show, Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education — The California Chapter.
"I'd attempted to get interviews in Native American environments and been told "We can tell our own story, you do't belong here. And I understand that as a disenfranchised person," she told Orr. "The opposite happened with the Yurok. I was welcomed, and it meant the world to me."
Smith has been spending a lot of time in communities, both as a performer and a investigative playwright. She's been using the stage to tell the story of America's school-to-prison pipeline and how it targets disenfranchised communities.
She performs Notes from the Field: Doing Time in Education — The California Chapter at the Yurok Country Visitor Center in Klamath today.
