The Society for Disability Studies is holding its annual conference at San Francisco State University from June 8th through 11th. The theme of the conference is Conversations & Connections Across Race, Disability & Identity. The conference coincides with activism by people in the Bay Area and on the East Coast to start a national organization for and by disabled people of color. There is a registration fee for the conference, but the following events are lower cost:

May Molinaprotest150.jpgThe photo exhibit Brown Disabled Broken Bodies: A Tour of Police Brutality Cases Against Disabled People of Color will be up on June 10th from 5-7PM in the Nob Hill Room. Photos of people such as May Molina, a diabetic woman who died in Chicago police custody when she was denied access to her medication, will be on display.

On Saturday June 11th from 12:30-2:30pm in the Richmond Room, there will be a panel entitled: Coast to Coast African Americans' Grassroots Incentives. The organizations to be represented are from the East Coast and California dealing with people of color with disabilities, and especially African Americans.

Also on June 11th, from 7:30-9:30pm in the Richmond Room, Black AND Disabled Artists Sharing, or BADAS, will perform Black Disabled Art History 101 with a slide show. Artists include Hip-Hop artist Keith Jones, Jazz poet Charles Curtice Blackwell, Safi wa Nairobi, and Leroy F. Moore.

As part of the conference, there will also be a Color of Disability photo exhibit of the two political conventions focusing on people of color with disabilities by Safi wa Nairobi.
