Push Out by Monique M. Morris

http://www.moniquewmorris.me/

“Why do adults get mad when strong girls ask questions? “They say I’m disrespectful. That’s my label, disrespectful, ‘cause I always got something to say…..[They keep] telling me, ‘Sometimes you got to bite your tongue.’…I don’t know how to do that, though.”

Read about Monique Morris’ work to seek justice for criminalized Black girls. She argues that Black girls use their voices to resist, and that tool for survival should not be silenced, but rather cultivated and prized.
