“Ringing with truth, pain, rage and outrage . . . and humor, delicious humor.” —Mumia Abu Jamal, Prisoner & Activist

The Peculiar Patriot is Liza Jessie Peterson’s one-woman takedown of the American criminal justice system, based on Peterson’s time working at Riker’s Island. The profane, rousing, and frequently hilarious story follows Betsy LaQuandra Ross as she visits penitentiaries to boost the morale of incarcerated friends and family, navigating love amid the barbed wire. The Peculiar Patriotgives voice to the voiceless and shines a glaring light on America’s fastest growing epidemic/industry with provocation and razor wit dialogue. Recommended for ages 18 and older.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
