Disability, the body and capitalism with Aurora Levins Morales

Today on KPFA’s Women’s Magazine we talk to writer, artist, historian, chronic illness survivor and revolutionary activist and  healer Aurora Levins Morales about her work and her life.  Aurora has fought against chronic illness and toxicity of 21st century Capitalism for decades  and continues to tell stories with medicinal powers to shift our consciousness and change how we think about ourselves, each other and the world.  Her writing is lyrical and powerful.  Today we talk to her about her work and in particular her book “Kindling:Writings on the Body” where she explores the meanings of sickness and healing, suffering and pleasure, through the story of her own body, of all of our bodies,  of the body of the planet.
