Recent examples in New York City and Georgia demonstrate the hard work that is still needed to produce learning environments that acknowledge and invest in the positive potential of black girls. Morris: I believe that the investment in black boys, and other boys of color, is necessary. Can you briefly discuss some of the complex dynamics, the social and economic factors, triggering this situation? The stigmas many attach to black girls has far-reaching and damaging consequences, Morris writes, with devastating effects on their academic, social, and emotional lives. Black women and girls must often navigate through a landscape that reinforces multidimensional stereotypes and debilitating narratives that negatively impact how black femininity is understood. Morris: When we combine latent misperceptions about black femininity with punitive discipline policies, we are paving the way for black girls to be disproportionately pushed out of schools. In short, black girls are devalued based on how others perceive them. I believe that the failure to include black girls in our articulation of American democracy has relegated too many of them to the margins of society.
