Punitive Measures, Pushout and Pittsburgh

Fri., Feb. 17
At the same time that Black women are outpacing others in the post-graduate arena, many young Black women are being left behind in public schools, marginalized by punitive and surveillance systems embedded into our education programs and into society at large. Black girls make up 16 percent of the public school population, but represent more than one-third of all girls with a school-related arrest.

Coretta Scott King Book Award Winners: Not Just For Kids

Tue., Feb. 7
The Coretta Scott King Book Awards are given out yearly to "outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values." Since 1970, the award named for Martin Luther King Jr.'s wife has honored such authors as Toni Morrison, Sharon Draper, and Walter Dean Myers. Although the books receiving the award are written for a young audience, many of them are also great reads for adults. Take a look at some of these winning titles.
