WQED Adultification Documentary & Panel
Amachi Hachi Pachi
Amachi families gathered at Oasis Farm & Fishery in Homewood to learn about urban farming and do some digging in the dirt! Oasis has a community program that focuses on education, employment, and entrepreneurship with a focus on the environment. Stay tuned for more opportunities for an Amachi / Oasis partnership later this summer!
Adultification is the perception that African American girls are more adult, more aggressive, more sexually aware and less in need of support and care than girls of the same age, but of different race. Experts have linked adultification to disproportionate rates of classroom discipline, school suspension, and referrals to the juvenile justice system for Black girls which has a direct connection to the school-to-prison pipeline.
