The Pitt Prison Education Project brought Lacresha Berry, a New York City actress, director, writer and teacher to SCI Laurel Highlands. For the Inside-Out course, "Imagining Social Justice," Berry performed a snippet of "Tubman," her one-woman show. "Tubman" highlights what would happen if Harriet Tubman was a student in a Harlem pubic school today. The play was followed by a high-energy discussion with the students in which Berry answered questions about the play, shared writing techniques and worked with inside students on performing their writing.
