Girlhood Interrupted: The Erasure of Black Girls’ Childhood

This groundbreaking new study recently released by the Georgetown University Law Center uses comprehensive survey data to show how the perception of black girls by the majority of the public differs from that of their peers. The results show, among many other worrying findings, that black girls are perceived as being older, less in need of nurturing, less in need of protection, and that they know more about adult topics at a younger age.
