In this episode, Amber and Erika are joined by activist and artist, Leroy Moore, to discuss the often ignored world of Black disabled people. Leroy is a Grammy award winning poet, speaker, and the founder of Krip Hop Nation, a collective of disabled artists and musicians. Through his own personal experiences combined with his advocacy and activism, Leroy sheds light on how ableism joins with racism to especially impact disabled Black people. He also opens up about the sad reality that Black justice movements like Black Lives Matter and the NAACP often fail to be inclusive of and sensitive to the unique struggles of Black disabled people. Listen up to get Leroy’s insight about how we can create more inclusive Black movements and advocate for an equitable society for all Black people.
