DISABILITY RIGHTS IN BLACK 2023: CHRISTOPHER M. BELL: BLACK DISABILITY STUDIES

February 20, 2023

Today we celebrate Black History Month in memory of Christopher M. Bell.

A renowned Disability Studies Scholar, he challenged the field’s whitewashing of disability history and the continued erasure of Black Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC) with disabilities.

Himself a Black gay man with HIV, Bell was unafraid to critique the absence of intersectional perspectives across the disability community.

Although Bell passed away in 2009, he remains a revered intellectual inspiring the present-day work of academics and advocates globally.

Check out a more detailed profile from the Lead On Network and read below for a tribute message penned by Dr. Moya Bailey and Dr. Therí Pickens.

Both Dr. Pickens and Dr. Bailey’s work are featured in Bell’s anthology, Blackness and Disability: Critical Examinations and Cultural Interventions.
