Living at the Intersection: Race, Gender & Disability (The Triple Cripples)

Online (link in description)
Thursday 17 December 2020
6pm - 7pm

This event is run by Student Voice

Join us for this free, special event and Q&A with Jumoke 'Jay' Abdullahi and Kym Oliver, co-founders of 'The Triple Cripples'.

Frustrated with the lack of representation and unaddressed discrimination faced by Black and non-Black People of Colour living with disabilities, Jumoke joined forces with Kym Oliver and created a platform to increase visibility & highlight the narratives of this “invisible population, within an invisible population”

With topical videos, spotlight interviews, workshops, talks & lectures on topics ranging from relationships to travel, the loveable duo has gained steady recognition for their insight & charisma. Featured on international platforms (BBC, AJ+, Vogue, Metro), and consulted for their invaluable perspectives in both academic & corporate circles (Oxford University, Cambridge University, Disability Leadership Institute, WOW). Black Disabled Culture cognoscenti, Kym & Jumoke, are relentless in their pursuit to transform the outcomes of those here and yet to come! Triple Cripples are extremely passionate about eradicating the cultural taboos surrounding illness and disability within the Black community, not just in the UK, but in the global diaspora. The intersections of Race, Gender & Disability are key factors in determining how people experience the world around them. Yet so often, these axes of oppression are overlooked in Disability activism, Feminist agendas & Black liberation movements. The TRIPLE CRIPPLES are here to change this culture

This event will have a BSL interpreter. A recording of the event will be posted on our website and Facebook page with closed captions.
