Women in the Room Productions announced its premiere schedule for “Pushout: The Criminalization Of Black Girls in Schools”, Friday. The documentary aims to feature “a close look at the educational, judicial and societal disparities facing Black Girls,” the film’s website says. “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.”
