Intersection of Race & Disability: Equity in the Classroom

Intersection of Race & Disability: Equity in the Classroom

An electronic poster/lightning talk (see attached) presented on May 18th at HASTAC 2019 "Decolonizing Technologies, Reprogramming Education."

This poster addresses ways in which race and disability overlap throughout history, as well as how we can use interactive media (such as experiential learning and digital game creation) to address these systems and begin to have these conversations in the classroom in place of the western canon. The poster also provides a recently founded project (Freedom Dreaming: A Call to Imagine, bit.ly/freedomdreaming) to help participants become activists in an effort to overcome intersecting oppressive systems.
