Racism isn't always obvious, but it can be found almost everywhere. This hour, TED speakers explore the effects of everyday and systemic racism in America—and how we can work to defeat it. Guests include authors Brittney Cooper and Monique Morris, journalism professor Pat Ferrucci, clinical psychologist Howard Stevenson, and anti-racism educator Travis Jones.
In Black America host John L. Hanson, Jr. presents the conclusion of a conversation with Dr. Monique W. Morris, education scholar, co-founder and president of The National Black Women’s Justice Institute, and author of Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools.
This has been one of my favorite interviews so far. I had the chance to interview Dr. Monique W. Morris. We discussed the trauma many black girls experience and her book "Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools."
It's important that progressives master intersectionality in reality and in practice and not co-opt the language of intersectionality for political expediency.
@KGNU's Claudia Cragg speaks here with (Dr.) Monique Morris - @MoniqueWMorris - co-Founder of National Black Women's Justice Institute (NBWJI). Author of#BlackStats, #TooBeautifulForWords and#PUSHOUT. In this interview, Dr. Morris relates the experiences of black girls across the United States who, she argues, have misunderstood and intricate lives. She believes many are often highly judged - by teachers, administrators, and the justice system - and degraded by the very institutions charged with helping them flourish. She shows how, despite obstacles, stigma, stereotypes, and despair, black girls still find ways to breathe remarkable dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities and beyond.
