The “Adultification” of Black Girls




Georgetown Law’s Center on Poverty and Inequality released a new study revealing a significant bias against Black girls starting as early as age five. Those surveyed in the study viewed Black girls as not as innocent as White. They did not think Black girls needed as much protecting or nurturing.
