Jamison in PUSHOUT Documentary

Dr. Monique Morris of Oakland, CA selected Judge Jamison to participate in the documentary PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in School due to her personal experiences as a young Black girl who experienced desegregation in Southern West Virginia.

"It's important that Black girls complete their education to reduce the rate of girls becoming involved in criminogenic behavior, said Jamison. It's important to change the narrative where Black girls are concerned. Black girls are adultified, over represented in all discipline categories in schools, and the resulting trauma can be crippling."

PUSHOUT examines the educational, judicial, and disparities in society that affect the lives of Black girls.
