Black Disabled Lives Matter: Voices and History of Black Disability Justice

The inspiring surge of Black Lives Matter activism of 2020 included a new wave of Black disability activism. This is critical, given estimates that one-third to one-half of police killings are of Black people with disabilities, who face multiple oppressions of racism, class inequality, and ableism. Today’s fight for Black disability justice is rooted in past Black disability activism and Black power movements, from Harriet Tubman to Brad Lomax and the Black Panthers. Join us for a conversation with pioneering Black disabled activists to learn about this history of Black disability activism and how the movement must continue to fight for justice in our times.
