Black Disability in Resistance and Creating: Story Telling & Moore
This presentation discusses what Black disabled resistance looks & sounds like through time. This presentation will go into ancestry stories, today’s Krip-Hop stories, and cultural work worldwide through book readings, songs, visual arts, videos and podcasts.
This presentation is hosted by activist, writer, poet, rapper, womanist, and radio programmer, Leroy Moore.
