Pushing Limits

Race and Disability – July 18, 2014

Listen Download | podcast

Black and brown people have always been present in the disability movement and
some have played pivotal roles. Yet our conversation about race is often pretty unsophisticated. We’re a long way from truly supporting all our community members and, like in the rest of the U.S., people of color with disabilities are frequently the last to be included.

At the same time, movements for racial equality and disability rights overlap and inform
each other. Disability Justice activists Patty Berne and Lateef Mcleod join white woman Adrienne Lauby for a conversation about where we are and where we could be in the partnership of race and disability.
