Living at the Intersection: Race, Gender & Disability (Black History Month ft. The Triple Cripples)

Online (see event description for link)
Monday 04 October 2021
6pm - 7:30pm

This event is run by Student Voice

Join us for this special online 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).  

The 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 that.
