CCI Brown Bag Lunch Discussion with Josh Crary - Race and Disability

  • Apr 16, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • Community Change Inc

As an individual who has lived life as both a fully able bodied person and now as a nearly blind young man, Josh Crary, Diversity Programs Advisor at Berklee College of Music, will be discussing the unique and complex intersection of racism and disability in the United States.  Additionally, Josh will deconstruct the harmful and undermining myth that those who are visually impaired or have various disabilities are free from understanding and acting upon oppressive social constructs and cultural values.  This in-depth analysis will help shed light on how deeply ingrained and pervasive these harmful social constructs are to all people.

Please bring your lunch, and a friend! The discussion will go for an hour and a half.

You can learn more about Josh Crary and his work on his blog, "The Boston Blind Runner."
