“In the tradition of History’s word warriors, Leroy Moore pens full frontal confrontations that blast away the last nasty vestiges of faith-based America’s biases against the poor, the disarranged, and the different.”
– Wanda Coleman
Leroy F. Moore, Jr. is a Black writer, poet, hip-hop/music lover, community activist and feminist with a physical disability. He has been sharing his perspective on identity, race & disability for the last thirteen plus years. His work on race and disability got deeper in London, England where he discovered a Black Disabled Movement which led to the creation of his lecture series, “On the Outskirts: Race & Disability.” Leroy F. Moore, Jr. is a consultant on Race & Disability, co/founder & community relations director of Sins Invalid (go to www.sininvalid.org to learn more). He is also the creator of Krip-Hop Nation (Hip-Hop artists with disabilities and other disabled musicians from around the world) and produced Krip-Hop Mixtape Series. With Binki Woi of Germany and Lady MJ of the UK he started what is now known as Mcees With Disabilities, an international movement.
Moore is a black disabled artist/activist who is committed to assisting other disabled persons, whether black or not, to get a better shake in our contemporary society. He is committed to Hip Hop as a means of advancing this; lyrics and poetry are his showcase. This is a man on a mission.
“Like a circle it all comes around! In the ’90s Modern Times Bookstore opened their doors to all of my creative creations from hosting their open mic to the nonprofit that I started, Disability Advocates of Minorities Org’s readings with disabled poets of color to supporting Sins Invalid with gift certificates for Sins shows and now I come back home to Modern Times for my official Black Kripple Delivers Poetry & Lyrics​ Book Release Get Down Party with special Krip-Hop artists who will be performing and also providing some of the music from my songs and poems that are in this book from Blues to spoken word to Krip-Hop.”
