PUSHOUT
The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools
(BONUS BOOK)
Monique W. Morris
The New Press, 2018
(Available in December)

Despite increased attention to the mass and over-incarceration of black men, the plight of criminalized black women and girls is overlooked, underreported and under analyzed. Pushout shows how even with obstacles, stigmas, stereotypes and despair, black girls still find ways to breathe remarkable dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities and beyond, and challenges the rest of us to do the same.
