Monique W Morris Biography

Monique W. Morris, Ed.D. is an award-winning author and social justice scholar with nearly three decades of experience in the areas of education, civil rights, juvenile and social justice. Dr. Morris is the author of Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools, Black Stats: African Americans by the Numbers in the Twenty-First Century, and Too Beautiful for Words. She worked with Kemba Smith on her book, Poster Child: The Kemba Smith Story and has written dozens of articles, book chapters, and other publications on social justice issues and lectured widely on research, policies, and practices associated with improving juvenile justice, educational, and socioeconomic conditions for Black girls, women, and their families. Dr. Morris is currently completing a book on how schools can perform as locations for healing for girls of color (The New Press, forthcoming).

Dr. Morris is the Founder and President of the National Black Women’s Justice Institute (NBWJI), an organization that works to interrupt school-to-confinement pathways for girls, reduce the barriers to employment for formerly incarcerated women, and increase the capacity of organizations working to reduce sexual assault and domestic violence in African American communities. She served as an adjunct associate professor for Saint Mary’s College of California between 2013-2018 and has taught at the University of San Francisco and California State University, Sacramento. Dr. Morris is a 2012 Soros Justice Fellow, the former Vice President for Economic Programs, Advocacy and Research at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the former Director of Research for the Thelton E. Henderson Center for Social Justice at the UC Berkeley Law School. She has also worked in partnership with and served as a consultant for federal, state and county agencies, national academic and research institutions, and communities throughout the nation to develop comprehensive approaches and training curricula to eliminate racial/ethnic and gender disparities in the justice system. Her work in this area has informed the development and implementation of improved culturally competent and gender-responsive continua of services for youth.

Dr. Morris’ work has been profiled by MSNBC, CSPAN2, The Washington Post, The New York Times, NPR, and PBS, among other national and local print, radio, and television media. Her research intersects race, gender, education and justice to explore the ways in which Black communities, and other communities of color, are uniquely affected by social policies. Dr. Morris is the co-author of Be Her Resource: A Toolkit about School Resource Officers and Girls of Color and Centering Black Women, Girls, Gender Nonconforming People and Fem(me)s in Campaigns for Expanded Sanctuary and Freedom Cities. Among other publications, Dr. Morris is the author of Representing the Educational Experiences of Black Girls in a Juvenile Court School; Sacred Inquiry and Delinquent Black Girls: Developing a Foundation for a Liberative Pedagogical Praxis ; Educating the Caged Bird: Black Girls and the Juvenile Court School and Race, Gender and the School to Prison Pipeline: Expanding Our Discussion to Include Black Girls. Her 2008 study, A Higher Hurdle: Barriers to Employment for Formerly Incarcerated Women, which is one of the first testing studies to examine the impact of a criminal record or period of incarceration on the employment outcomes of women, was referenced in a special report commissioned by Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-IL).

Dr. Morris is a core member of the OJJDP National Girls Initiative Expert Panel and a member of the California Board of State and Community Corrections’ Committee on Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparity. She also served as a member of the California Department of Education’s Juvenile Court Student Transition Workgroup.
