Race and Disability. Two powerful words. Two reasons for discrimination and prejudice. Two labels for mass movements that have empowered many people to work for change. We broach the topic of how movements for racial equality and disability rights overlap and inform each other. We discuss the link between racism and ableism and how do they differ in their form of oppression. We broach; we introduce; we begin. And, Lateff Mcleod and Mia Mingus are with us for the conversation. Lateef McLeod is a black writer who lives with cerebral palsy. His book, A Declaration of A Body of Love was published in 2010. He works with the performance group Sins Invalid and blogs at United Cerebral Palsy of the Golden Gate, the Huffington Post and other outlets. Mia Mingus is a queer, physically disabled woman of color, korean transracial and transnational adoptee writer. She was among the first to develop the concept of Disability Justice. Currently she works with the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collaborative. Hosted by Adrienne Lauby. Produced by Jacob Lesner-Buxton and Adrienne Lauby.
