The Tearing Down Of Black Disabled Movements, Constantly Starting Over

Hello people it is July 2020 & the disability community is tied up with the 30 anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act in the middle of COVID and police brutality.
 

To The Recent Media Requests, Eat My Disability

 
My 2009 poem, Eat My Disability, is now in 2020 my reply of the suddenness wake up of mainstream media and popular movement around police brutality and out of the blue connection to disability and don’t give me no intersectionality crap because if you know me then you know I’ve been on this issue since the police killing of Eleanor Bumpers in 1984 and I connected all of her identities back then, an elderly, Black, woman, with a mental health disability.
 

Immune Tips for COVID-19 (and for cold and flu season in general)

I think it's safe to say that we've all been thinking more about public health and stopping the
spread of viruses over the last few weeks. The need for social distancing right now is high. This
help us to to protect each other (especially those who are elder, immune compromised, or have
other health conditions that make them more vulnerable) from rapid virus spread, and helps to
avoid overwhelming our health system.

My Krip Kamp Story, Honoring Ms. Bev Jackson

Now that  Jim LeBrecht’s film, Crip Camp is out, I wanted to put my Crip Camp story out that started with a mirror that was named Beverley aka Bev Jackson, a director of United Cerebral Palsy Association and she was the director of Summer camp, Camp Harkness. Oh yeah Jackson like me was Black and disabled, same disability that I had cerebral palsy.
 
 

Broken Promises Before Coronavirus (COVID-19) & Now This: People with Disabilities

Today yes we are locked down if you have a home and as we wait once again to see if the people get bailouts many groups have been in this situation over and over. From democrats to republicans have so many broken promises toward people with disabilities going back to the 70’s..

From Leroy’s 1980’s Road to Radio To Today’s KEXU 96.1 FM Krip-Hop Radio @ Poor Magazine

 
The biggest joke in my youth in the late 70’s and 80’s was my goal to be a radio DJ because of my disability Cerebral Palsy I used to stutter. Yes, people like teachers, some family members, friends and counselor all laughed about the goal of being on the radio. Here is my story of my dream to be on the radio from 1980’s WCCC 106.9 FM Hartford, CT. to today with Poor Magazine’s KEXU 96.1 FM East Oakland, CA..
