Angered: Black and Non-Black Girls of Color at the Intersections of Violence and School Discipline in the United States
Wun, Connie
Race, Ethnicity and Education, v21 n4 p423-437 2018
While most research examining school discipline policies have focused on the experiences of boys of color, this article explores the relationship between violence and school discipline as they shape the lives of girls of color and their disciplinary records. Using in-depth interviews, this article re-narrates the experiences of Black and non-Black girls of color who have discipline records to explore their experiences. The author found that in addition to being subject to multiple, intersecting forms of violence outside of school, girls of color--particularly Black girls--are also subject to schools as sites of control that elicit their anger and resistance. This author contends that faculty should establish new ways of understanding Black and non-Black girls of color by accounting for the ways that intersectional violence shapes the girls' lives and supports their 'anger', agency and resistance to violence.
