“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 the 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.”
Registration is $8 for all YWCA members and $10 for non-members. Contact Danielle Helzer at dhelzer@ywca-gi.org with any questions you may have.
