On tonight’s show we explore disability and disability justice:

Austin Tam

Austin Tam

We’ll hear from folks with disabilities spanning the visible, like Jean Lin who has Cerebral Palsy, to the invisible like Claire Light who has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Austin Tam who has ADHD and a cognitive disorder.

We’ll also hear from disability justice organizer Mia Mingus and her views on new ways to conceive of disability and its contributions to the movement for collective liberation.

Peppered throughout the show, award-winning poet Anhvu Buchanan treats us with readings from his book The Disordered based on entries from the DSM IV.
