In conjunction with the opening of our new pop-up exhibition, Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness to the Incarcerated Girls of New York, we are hosting a screening of the documentary PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools.
This award-winning film takes a deep dive into the lives of Black girls and the practices, cultural beliefs and policies that disrupt one of the most important factors in the lives of children – their education. Inspired by the groundbreaking book of the same name by a 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 and exposes the educational, judicial, and societal disparities African-American girls face in the United States. The film includes heart-wrenching stories from young women (aged 7 to 19) across the country as they narrate the challenges they encounter daily.
