On tonight’s show we explore disability and disability justice:
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 novel 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 new book The Disordered based on entries from the DSM IV.
