Poetry & Disability Justice, Sponsored by Cave Canem & Zoeglossia

Saturday, March 26, 2022
10:35 am to 11:35 am


Adapted from Patty Berne’s "Disability Justice - A Working Draft," a disability justice framework understands that: all bodies are unique and essential; all bodies have strengths and needs that must be met; we are powerful, not despite the complexities of our bodies, but because of them; and all bodies are confined by ability, race, gender, sexuality, class, nation state, religion, and more, and we cannot separate them. Disability justice holds a vision born out of collective struggle, drawing upon legacies of cultural and spiritual resistance.” Cave Canem and Zoeglossia invite you to join Raymond Antrobus, Khadijah Queen, and L. Lamar Wilson in a discussion on how poets of color work within and without that framework, including readings from the poets.
