Race, Gender, and the School-to-Prison Pipeline: Expanding Our Discussion to Black Girls

Race, Gender, and the School-to-Prison Pipeline: Expanding Our Discussion to Black Girls argues that the "pipeline" metaphor fails to capture and respond to the set of conditions affecting Black girls today, building upon AAPF's long articulated stance that an intersectional analysis is the key tool needed to reveal the causal and correlative factors that contribute to Black girls and women's continuing vulnerabilities inside and outside of our immediate communities.  By pulling together a substantive body of literature, author Monique Morris articulates what we have all long known: The current "crisis" in Black communities is one faced by our boys and our girls.
