The article is the first in a series of 5 interviews on Police Brutality by Leroy Moore. Look for future articles.
Anita Cameron speaks with Leroy Moore from Krip-Hop Nation.
Krip-Hop - In this series I made an effort to identify Black disabled activists and bloggers/journalists that have been outspoken on the issue of police brutality against Black disabled people.
Krip-Hop - So tell us first how did you get into blogging/journalism and has the journalism world been accepting of your multiple identities, disabled, female and queer?
Anita Cameron – I started blogging back in 2004 as dread1myn at The Roving Activist, though I began writing as a kid. I was accepted by other queer bloggers of color and a few bloggers with disabilities, but I never felt or feel today, that I’ve made the big time. I wrote for Yahoo Voices until they closed shop and wrote for The Mobility Resource. I’ve been a guest columnist for The Greeley Tribune, as well as the State of Colorado and at Handicap This! A couple of my articles made The Huffington Post and an article that I wrote appears in Howard Zinn’s “Voices of a People’s History of the United States”. Currently, I blog at Angry Black Womyn. There, I blog about racial, as well as disability issues.
