FIC – Black History Month Online Screening
In celebration of Black History Month, Rocky Mountain Women’s Film welcomes our Film in the Community members to attend a virtual screening of PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools. Dr. Monique Morris, the author of the book by the same name, produced the film. Using compelling interviews with Black girls of a range of ages, along with insights from experts in the area of equity and inclusion, the film examines the many misunderstandings of Black girlhood that lead to excessive discipline of Black girls in school. The experts not only give thought-provoking insight to the cultural beliefs that led to this crisis, but provide concrete methods for how the education system can provide positive, rather than punitive, responses to often misunderstood behavior.
The film is FREE and available to watch online, at your convenience, between February 20th-25th.
