"Black Rage at the Table is a breakout session
that centers d/Disability with Black women/femmes.
Breaking down pop culture examples, exposing ableism coupled with misogynoir, will highlight how easily the two are perpetuated and sustained on all levels. Highlighting d/Disabled identities in the room, the session will address the struggles, rights, and accommodations we have, from school to the workplace, as well as how to navigate them. Disability in this space is not simply a medical diagnosis or a social construct, but a lived experience, and for some an empowering identity rarely recognized as brave."
