I’m happy to announce that my second book, Black Disability Politics, is now in production w/ @DukePress, slated for a Fall 2022 release. This book documents & theorizes about how Black cultural workers have engaged disability as a political concern historically & in the present.
I draw on the archives of the Black Panther Party & the National Black Women’s Health project as well as interviews w/ Black disabled leaders @VilissaThompson, @notthreefifths, @talilalewis, @Angry_Negro, @Tinu, @call_me_ill, @4WheelWorkOut, @hwatkins927, @BeingKaylaSmith & more.
This book is written with both academic & organizer/activist audience in mind, providing praxis interludes between the historical chapters to demonstrate how we can learn lessons from mistakes of the past to better incorporate disability into Black liberation work today.
