Union Theological Seminary on Screen ~ Orange is the New Black

Towards the end of the second season of Orange is the New Black, there is an episode, “Take a Break from your Values” which gives the backstory of one of the inmates, Sister Ingalls, played by Beth Flower, who landed in jail for chaining herself to a flagpole at a nuclear test site. As they flashback to how the nun got radicalized, there is a scene where three nuns, including Sister Ingalls are just getting back from a anti-Viet Nam War rally. The scene takes place on the grounds of Riverside Church on the Upper West Side but the building in the background of this scene is Union Theological Seminary. The stain glass are the windows of James Chapel.
