Pushout by Monique Morris

Clear rating

Like so many other powerful books that fight to open up wider the discourse on black identity in the white-supremacist culture, Morris' prose articulates truths and presents research to show the ways in which the K-12 system creates situations and standards that disproportionately drive out black girls. Her work weaves together interviews, statistics, and policies, which provides a keen sense of how both schools and communities are often complicit in targetting and/or neglecting the needs or challenges that black girls face. For those who work with youth or even college-age people, Morris' work is essential for thinking about what assumptions or actions that you take daily may be de facto alienating or ostracizing black girls.
