The-School-To-Prison Pipeline: Get Free Tickets for 6/19 & Discounted Everyman Theatre Tickets


Each year, 150,000 Black and Brown children—disproportionally those with disabilities—are handcuffed, restrained, referred to law enforcement, and arrested in our nation’s schools.


Promise Heights has partnered with Everyman Theatre to offer a 90-minute Juneteenth virtual event featuring community partners reflecting on how Baltimore is affected by these acts of inequality and racism experienced by our children, and what is being done to change that reality.


As this unpredicted season begins against the backdrop of Covid-19, racial unrest, and actions striving for justice and healing – nothing is “normal.”


The last program in a series of Winter/Spring 2021

"From the Heights" virtual conversations hosted by Promise Heights will examine the many challenges of this moment, offering actionable insights that you can use today.


Please join this free virtual webinar conversation, scheduled on Juneteenth—Saturday, June 19, 2021 from 1-2:30 pm. Participants are encouraged to also view Everyman Theatre’s current streaming production of Dominique Morisseau’s renowned play, Pipeline. (See link to register for all tickets.)


FEATURED PANELISTS:


Bronwyn Mayden, Executive Director of Promise Heights and UMB Assistant Dean of Community Engagement


Jemira Queen: A senior from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and youth advocate in her community


Jefferson A. Russell, stars as Xavier in this production and is perhaps best known for his roles in Homicide (1993) and many other works


Tammatha Woodhouse, Principal of Renaissance Academy High and former Principal of Excel Academy, Middle & High School


Moderated by Dr. Kaye Wise Whitehead, author, educator, and host of WEAA/88.9FM\'s "Today with Dr. Kaye."


The play and the conversation will both be virtual. After completing registration for the June 19 program, you will be automatically redirected to Everyman Theatre\'s website.
