In this episode, we'll chat with Dr. Therí A. Pickens in Maine. She's a professor at Bates College, a writer, and a champion for new voices as the founder of Inquiry Editing LLC. She’s also the author of several books, including "Black Madness :: Mad Blackness." 

Dr. Pickens breaks down how the concept of disability intersects with Blackness and how our society has invisibilized people over the years to our own collective cost. Listen as she dives deep into the historical ties between Black labor and the perception of ability. She also unpacks the fascinating journey into the impact of food segregation on health issues like high blood pressure, asthma, and diabetes. She reminds (or teaches) us how our heroes were shaped by embracing ALL of who they are.

Join us for an insightful conversation on The Cipher as we discuss identity and disability in Black America.
