Based on excerpts from her autobiography PHD (Po H# on Dope) to Ph.D.: How Education Saved My Life, the show features expressive performance, storytelling and music. The emotional weariness of Dr. Richardson’s passage through a life nearly torn apart by prostitution and drugs emerges into victorious living, triumphantly immersed in education and service. Dr. E’s story of sexual exploitation and other forms of bondage is used to promote healing and empowerment through education.

PHD (Po H# on Dope) to Ph.D.: How Education Saved My Life can be found anywhere books are sold.
