Almazan’s La Paloma Prisoner was recently awarded the Arthur J. Harris Memorial Prize through Columbia University. Raquel will partner with STEPS to End Family Violence that will include programming with formerly incarcerated women, universities and other organizations to create exchange towards ending mass incarceration.
“This year the Arthur J. Harris Memorial Prize will go to Raquel Almazan to produce her play La Paloma Prisoner, ‘. . . a lyrical bi-lingual play’ that tackles issues of mass incarceration. This work dramatically embodies the goals of the prize to address very pertinent social issues and in this case, does so in a uniquely innovative form.” Carol Becker – Dean of Arts
