Myelin & Melanin: Raising The Temp

Feb 9, 2022

Join us as we chat with the amazing Imani Barbarin! We were so excited for this conversation, y'all!
The epitome of Black Girl Magic and Disability Pride, Imani Barbarin, also known as Crutches & Spice, is one of the newest trending voices in intersectionality and representation media. Crowned the "Disability Hashtag Queen" by her fans, Imani is the creator of several trending hashtags including #DisTheOscars #AbledsAreWeird, and #ThingsDisabledPeopleKnow. Her sassy online presence has gained attention of large digital media platforms including Refinery 29, NPR, Yahoo, and politicians alike. She has modeled in Paris fashion shows, is a published Forbes contributor, and can be found on Hollywood billboards. Imani recently became an ambassador for REBDOLLS, a missy and plus size fashion brand that believes all women deserve amazing fashion. Imani is quickly becoming a Millennial favorite and online powerhouse.

Daana Townsend (she/her) a Professor and content creator; and Carlos Kareem Windham (they/them), a comedian, facilitator and musician -- each living with Multiple Sclerosis -- are your hosts this season and explore the intersections of race, culture, politics, disability and all the things.
