From the author of Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools

For four years Monique W. Morris, author of Black Stats, chronicled the experiences of black girls across the country whose intricate lives are misunderstood, highly judged—by teachers, administrators, and the justice system—and degraded by the very institutions charged with helping them flourish. Morris shows how, despite obstacles, stigmas, stereotypes, and despair, black girls still find ways to breathe remarkable dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities, and beyond.

Screening followed by discussion with Dr. Monique Morris.

Just Films participants may attend the screening at no cost, but MUST REGISTER here.
