The "school-to-prison pipeline," interactions between youth and police, and the juvenile justice system are some of the issues under renewed scrutiny as protests for racial justice continue. A new book co-edited by University of Evansville psychology associate professor Margaret Stevenson examines scientific studies on those issues and the legacy of racism for children.
WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke to Stevenson about the challenges children of color face from public policies.
The book “The Legacy of Racism for Children, Psychology, Law and Public Policy,” is out now.
