In today’s episode, I talk to Keah Brown about her writing, growing up disabled with an able bodied twin sister, visibility and intersectionality, get real about learning to be nice to ourselves, not seeing herself as a black disabled woman represented in media, and what Keah plans to do about it.
In this week’s bonus episode we talk about mental health, writing to connect, working remotely as a bridge to employment for some people with disabilities, and what a pain in the ass filing for SS Disability is.
