Start Date: 4/25/2019Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 4/25/2019End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description
Drexel's Critical Conversations in Urban Education Lecture Series and the Education Law Center are proud to host a citywide discussion about how negative stereotypes and racialized gender bias specific to Black girls contribute to their overrepresentation among school discipline and in systems of confinement. Through the lens of intersectionality, Dr. Monique Morris, Founder and President of the National Black Women's Justice Institute, and author of Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools, will share what she has learned about the lived experiences of Black girls in schools. Dr. Morris' keynote will be followed by an assets-based, solution-focused panel discussion among local community members, educators, and legal lawyers on our role in the protection of the future of Black girls in Philadelphia and beyond.
