PUSHOUT:THE CRIMINALIZATION OF BLACK GIRLS IN SCHOOLS

PUSHOUT:THE CRIMINALIZATION OF BLACK GIRLS IN SCHOOLS is a feature length documentary which takes a close look at the educational, judicial and societal disparities facing Black Girls. Inspired by the groundbreaking book of the same name by renowned scholar, Monique W. Morris, Ed.D. The documentary confronts the ways in which the misunderstanding of Black girlhood has led to excessive punitive discipline which in turn disrupts one of the most important factors in their lives, their education.

A panel discussion and Q&A will take place immediately following the screening. Our panelist will be prominent local community leaders.

Registration will begin @ 2:30pm, screening will begin @ 3pm.
