Born in Babylon
Disabled people are often the in-between and unseen. From black lives matter to major equity initiatives, they're often left out. These are their stories. Presented by Luticha Doucette, owner of Catalyst Consulting, and moderated by Amanda Chestnut, educator and curator of In This Moment: Revolution Reckoning Reparation.
This program is part of a series highlighting participants of In This Moment: Revolution Reckoning Reparation, a project for ten teams of Black writers and photographers to profile ten Black leaders from across the city of Rochester published by Visual Studies Workshop. The project demonstrates the breadth and scope of revolutionary work happening in the area. This library series is co-sponsored by the Monroe County Library System and the Rochester Public Library.
