Racial Equity and Liberation Virtual Learning Series
Please join us for a voluntary, informal, and interdisciplinary conversation series among faculty, staff, and administration across the four graduate professional schools at Fordham University. During these conversations, we hope to ground ourselves through self-reflection and a focus on our evolving, abolitionist, anti-racist work.
This series takes inspiration from the Racial Equity and Liberation Virtual Learning Series executed by Move to End Violence.

Film Viewing and Discussion –
Pushout: The criminalization of Black Girls in Schools
Join us at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 16 (details coming soon) to view filmmaker Monique W. Morris, Ed.D.’s Pushout: The criminalization of Black Girls in Schools. Following the viewing, the GSE and its curriculum and teaching division will host a discussion at 8:30 p.m., facilitated by scholar and documentary filmmaker Rosie Uyola, Ph.D., and GSE associate dean for academic affairs Jane Bolgatz, Ph.D.
Kirkus Reviews has called the film "compelling" and "thought-provoking". Morris herself talks about it this way:
"I want people to walk away from this documentary understanding, number one, that our girls are not disposable . . . and to really think about how we can shift our understanding of what constitutes a bad attitude or sassiness or combativeness.
The documentary is a tool to explore how educators, parents, and policy makers can demonstrate that we love our girls and hold them, and their educational opportunities, as sacred to our community."
