From the Classroom to the Courtroom: Intersectional Stereotypes and the Experience of African American Girls in Public Systems

Talk by Thalia González about "Girlhood Interrupted: The Erasure of Black Girls' Childhood."

Thalia González, Associate Professor of Politics at Occidental College, will discuss findings from the groundbreaking report she co-authored, Girlhood Interrupted: The Erasure of Black Girls' Childhood. The report provides -- for the first time -- data showing that adults view Black girls as less innocent and more adult-like than their white peers, especially in the age range of five and fourteen. 

Professor González will be introduced by UCLA Law's Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw . 

Lunch will be provided.
Please RSVP by noon on Tuesday, March 13. 

This program is cosponsored by UCLA Law's Critical Race Studies Program. 

Questions may be directed to Brenda Kim at
