Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools - Monique W. Morris

Staff Pick

Monique Morris’s book is a superb examination of the policies and cultural practices of our educational and criminal justice systems that continue to fail Black girls today. Focused on the cultural sexualization of black girls, Morris’s narrative is personal, powerful, and thoroughly researched. Michelle Alexander (author of The New Jim Crow) called Pushout a “powerful indictment of the cultural beliefs, policies and practices that criminalize and dehumanize Black girls in America.” Highlighting another side of persistent racial inequities, Morris’s book is an essential and important read.
