We are outraged by the unconscionable act of violence committed in a Spring Valley math class this past Monday

We know that violence against Black girls and women is not new; it is the same violence that brutalized
Salecia Johnson, Diamond Neals, Mikia Hutchinson, and Dajerria Becton. The vicious bodily assault on the young Black high school student is indicative of the ways that Black women and girls throughout society encounter state violence on a daily basis. This system extends beyond Spring Valley and threatens Black girls across the United States.

Join the African American Policy Forum next Tuesday November 3rd at 12pm EST for a webinar on Black girls and discipline entitled, "Spring Valley is Everywhere: When Being A Black Girl is Your Only Crime."


This webinar will amplify the voices of young women who have been impacted by overly punitive discipline policies, educators who have witnessed the criminalization of Black girls in schools, scholars who have researched the gendered and racialized dimensions of the School to Prison Pipeline, and more.
Speakers will include:

Kimberle Crenshaw- The African American Policy Forum
Je'Kendria Trahan- Black Youth Project, DC
Amanda Petteruti- Co-author of “The Case Against Police in Schools,” a report from the Justice Policy Institute
Kisha Webster- Educator and Youth Advocate
Samantha Master- Planned Parenthood Federation of America
And more….
If you or your child has experienced overpolicing in schools, please send us an email at info@aapf.org. We want to hear your story!

Who do you think is more affected by the School to Prison Pipeline? I ask, because I am a bit confused on why this situation has to focus on one gender. Would not the boys in that same pipeline in larger numbers need help too? I would think coming together as men and women to protect our children would create a stronger voice.

*sigh*

This question has come up over and over when programs such as My Brother's Keeper were established. My opinion is that the question is unintentionally divisive.

Some issues are better dealt with by separation of gender to keep focus on critical issues. When you mix genders nature takes course and there tends to be distraction.

AA are all in need of attention in these areas. We are not in a competition. I feel that it is good and right that brothas are stepping up to help brothas, and sistas are stepping up to help sistas, too. Yes, it's ok if some programs help both as well. But, I am not offended if all programs don't. JMO.

Violent SC Arrest Reflects How African-American Girls Are Disproportionately Disciplined in Schools, Study Author Says

The recent violent arrest of an African-American girl at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina, is prompting outrage on social media under the hashtag #AssaultAtSpringValley, and activists say the incident is just one piece of the larger problems of institutionalized racism and the school-to-prison pipeline.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
