Pushout - Community Discussion - Idaho Black History Museum

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

At the core of Pushout’s analysis is the incisive assertion that the mistreatment of Black girls is grounded in stigmatizing, historic perceptions of Black femininity. Throughout the book, Morris brilliantly employs personal narratives of Black girls who have experienced school pushout to deconstruct conventional understandings of classroom behaviors and interactions that are often perceived to be troublesome, particularly when exhibited by Black girls, and which often lead to exclusionary disciplinary actions.
