Myelin & Melanin: Raising The Temp

Feb 23, 2022

Join us for an enlightening conversation with the phenomenal Kym Oliver. Kym (half of the duo "The Triple Cripples") and Daana chat about race, intersectionality, disability, decolonization and all the things.

So who is Kym Oliver?

Kym is a multifaceted creative, thinker, writer, speaker and consultant, committed to envisioning an equitable future for those within the margins of the margins, through ideological and structural transformation. She is the 'Official Goddess’ for The Triple Cripples - a platform dedicated to highlighting the narratives and increasing the visibility of Black, & non-Black Melanated People, living with Disability (Features: BBC, Vogue, Al Jazeera+, British Library, University of Oxford, Wow Foundation, gal-dem, LSE, Estee Lauder, Virgin Media, Inner Hoe Uprising and more).


Check out the TED Talk ("Empowerment as a Disabled, Black Woman") that led Daana to Kym:
