PUSHOUT: THE CRIMINALIZATION OF BLACK GIRLS IN SCHOOLS is a feature length documentary that takes a deep dive into the lives of Black girls and the practices, cultural beliefs and policies that disrupts one of the most important factors in girls’ lives – education.

This documentary, recently premiered at the Congressional Black Caucus, is based on the critically acclaimed book by one of the founders of our Learning Network, Dr. Monique W. Morris.
