Podcast: Race and Disability, Pushing Limits, KPFA 94.1 FM

Check out one of Pushing Limits’ recent podcasts originally broadcasted on July 18, 2014, 2:30 pm.

Race and Disability

Black and brown people have always been present in the disability movement and some have played pivotal roles. Yet our conversation about race is often pretty unsophisticated. We’re a long way from truly supporting all our community members and, like in the rest of the U.S., people of color with disabilities are frequently the last to be included. At the same time, movements for racial equality and disability rights overlap and inform each other. Disability Justice activists Patty Berne and Lateef Mcleod join white woman Adrienne Lauby for a conversation about where we are and where we could be in the partnership of race and disability.


For more about guests Lateef McLeod and Patty Berne:

Pushing Limits is produced at KPFA radio in Berkeley, California, by a collective of unpaid staff members. It airs the 1st, 3rd and 5th Friday of each month at from 2:30-3 pm at 94.1 fm. Their mission is to have a show produced by people with disabilities that reflects people with disabilities’ culture and thought in the Bay Area and beyond.
