Pushing Limitgs – March 15, 2013

podcast

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.
