You may know Drew Barker as our Graduate Student for Development or as a Master’s Candidate in Theatre and Performance Studies with TDPS.

Now you can know him as the first place winner in the National Endowment for the Humanities Emancipation Nation student contest.

Drew’s one-act play Freedom’s Fortress was chosen as the best piece of original creative writing that responds to historical documents NEH-supported online databases.

NEH has posted an interview with Drew and a PDF of his script.

Congratulations, Drew!
