“This resource is based on our human rights. We know that the entrance door for many individuals to education and learning is not open, or is layered with complications. It is from this context I will explore the experiences of Black Disabled women and girls, and how different identities determine our treatment, privileges and how we are privileged/disadvantaged within society.
I will begin by presenting some questions for discussion, alongside definitions of key terms, followed by accounts of two important Black Disabled Women in our history and intersectional struggle for equality – Mary Prince and Elizabeth Gertrude Suggs.
Finally, I will discuss the problems for Disabled Black women and girls in the UK today, and what we can do to help eradicate these”
