Check out Keith Jones: Un-rapping Disability
Listen to this post:
Here is a beautifully done short documentary that looks at intersections of race and disability! Here’s Keith Jones using music (including krip hop), public speaking, humor, and total honesty. He raises awareness of disability discrimination in many forms: doctors saying he’ll never amount to much, folks on the street thinking he’ll never amount to much, people forgetting that a set of stairs and non-power door are what prevent him from getting into a building, NOT his disability….
He points out in this film that the Disability movement is “about valuing the human.” Once told that he was “too crippled to rap,” just take a look. Because this documentary shows him rapping. So there!
