Free screening of "PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls" documentary this week

Hello GC Community,

The College of Education's Diversity Committee is hosting a free screening of the powerful documentary entitled "PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools" on Wednesday, March 11th at 12pm in the Peabody Auditorium. This film by Monique W. Morris and Jacoba Atlas critically examines the discrimination and excessive punishment that Black girls in K-12 schools face at the intersections of race and gender. As part of the COE's Social Justice Dialogue Series, "PUSHOUT" forces viewers to reflect on Black girlhood and how our unfair perceptions can have devastating consequences for Black girls in schools. A discussion will follow directly afterward. 

This viewing is free and open to the public.
