Traveling Library – READING RECOMMENDATION

Diversity across the Curriculum subcommittee

Lewis Hall rm. 624

 

March is National Women’s History Month

In celebration Julie Hale recommends reading Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools by Monique Morris

 

Pushout uses stories to explore “the policies, practices, and cultural illiteracy that push countless students out of school and into unhealthy, unstable, and often unsafe futures.” Morris digs beyond the label of school-related arrests to uncover girls’ underlying stories that involve abuse, sex exploitation, and discrimination. The novel highlights the need for continued conversation including how institutions and people who should help these young girls often fail to do so.

The book can be checked out from the traveling library located in Lewis 624. We hope you read this book during March and join us for the discussion on April 4 at 5:00-6:30 (more information to come)!

If you have any questions or recommendations for the traveling library, please contact

Sarah at slsf3e@missouri.edu
