Explore how art and storytelling can highlight social change.

In 2017, the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality released a groundbreaking study, Girlhood Interrupted: The Erasure of Black Girls’ Childhood, which revealed that adults view black girls as less innocent and more adult-like than their white peers. Now, follow-up research centers the voices of black women and girls, who confirmed in focus groups that they commonly experience this bias and believe it is linked to harsher treatment in schools and other public systems.

Join us to learn about the unique ways the initiative is using art and storytelling to highlight the experience of young black girls.
