College of Education Dean's Lecture on Education and Society featuring Monique W. Morris

Joint College of Arts and Humanities Dean's Lecture

In this lecture, award-winning author and social justice scholar, Monique W. Morris, discusses her documentary, “PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools.” Based on two of her books—one of the same name and “Sing a Rhythm, Dance a Blues: Education for the Liberation of Black and Brown Girls”—the documentary examines the educational, judicial and societal disparities facing Black girls.

With three decades of experience in education, civil rights and juvenile and social justice, Morris’ work has provided a road map for educators and policymakers to address the school-to-prison pipeline for Black girls. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A moderated by ARHU Dean Thornton Dill.

This event is co-sponsored by the College of Arts & Humanities and the College of Education.
