PushOut: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools
Neighbors for Equity and Justice and the Atlantic Highlands Navesink United Methodist Church are hosting a screening of the documentary, PUSHOUT with a facilitated discussion afterward to further a conversation about racial disparities affecting young girls.
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.
