“Intersectionality & Stigma: Understanding the Impact of Racial and Disability Biases on Black Autistic People” by Desi Jones Online

From disparities in healthcare to social alienation, structural racism has exerted a considerable impact on the lives of Black people. Likewise, individuals with disabilities, including autistic people, are often on the receiving end of prejudice and discrimination. But how do race and disability stigma interact and influence the lived experiences of people with multiple marginalized identities? This talk will highlight the intersectional stigma experienced by Black autistic people, and its effects on their social and health outcomes.
