Special Event: A Conversation with Dr. Monique Morris

Come join us for a special event on Tuesday, March 8th at 5pm in the BSU Lounge. BGSA and the Black Women’s Alliance at MIT are jointly hosting Dr. Monique Morris for a conversation about her new book, “Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools.” Michelle Alexander, author of “The New Jim Crow,” has described ‘Pushout’ as “a powerful indictment of the cultural beliefs, policies, and practices that criminalize and dehumanize Black girls in America.”
