Our Race and Disability Lecture Series focuses on educating, empowering, and including stakeholder voices in the conversation about the black community's intersection of race and disability. Our goal is to engage in meaningful discussions addressing the problems that the black disabled community face.
Black equity and excellence is the rigorous pursuit of knowledge, critical thinking about issues, and inclusion of all components of black society in conversations about the black community. It is the commitment to equipping the community to shape its future through education, empowerment, and inclusion. Finally, it is the freedom to create new experiences and explore new ideas. By creating opportunities to acquire knowledge, engage in critical thinking, and include the voices of disabled people, our race and disability lecture series fosters black equity and excellence.
Our partners currently include Sanchia A. Callender, Inc, The Academy of Excellence, Inc, Masking and Kompany, and Straight Independent Radio. The race and disability lecture series is made possible by the Black Equity and Excellence Fund of the Community Foundation of Central New York.
