🎞 Pushout- Documentary Screening

Tuesday, February 4th

5:30-7:30PM‬

Downtown Library, Center for Contemporary Culture

To highlight Black History Month join us for a screening of Pushout, a documentary on the criminalization of Black girls in schools. This feature length documentary takes a close look at the educational, judicial and societal disparities facing Black girls. Inspired by the groundbreaking book of the same name by renowned scholar, Monique W. Morris, Ed.D. The documentary confronts the ways in which the misunderstanding of Black girlhood has led to excessive punitive discipline which in turn disrupts one of the most important factors in their lives, their education.

Hartford group “Youth Ending Mass Incarceration” will lead a brief community conversation after the film.
