Disability/Race”  - a conversation with Mark Travis Rivera”

The College’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion invites all to attend a conversation on disability and race with Mark Travis Rivera. “Disability/Race” explores the intersection of disability and race, with a particular focus on people of color communities and how disability is viewed, discussed, and understood. The discussion will tackle language (“that’s so retarded”), media representation of people of color with disabilities (or lack thereof), and the stigma that’s associated with race and disability.
