18. Ableism in Education with Keith Jones

Keith Jones Bio

In this episode, Keith Jones takes us on a journey through past and present experiences of ableism in education, as well as the intersection of being Black as well as disabled. Keith simultaneously honors educators while also speaking frankly with us and challenging us. What do we want to be? A brick wall? Or a launching pad? Finally, in this episode, you'll hear a clip from Krip Hop Nation's Emmy Award-Winning song, Rising Phoenix. Note: Adult language.
