Nothing About Us
NBDC ensures that Black disabled lives are a priority in all spaces.
We work to promote disability equity in the greater Black community.
By dismantling ableist beliefs and perceptions about disabled people, we believe we will fulfill our
vision of seeing Black disabled people participating as full members in our own communities.
Black disabled students are less likely than their white counterparts to attend post secondary education.

Self-Care & Supporting One Another
for Black Disabled Women and Mothers
Healthy living with disability in a world that is driven by ableism, racism, isolation, and competition can be all encompassing. Instinctive Living: Self Care and Supporting One Another provides the opportunity to share lived experiences, and techniques for self-care and the ability to support others in our tribe. It is a time for healing. A space away from whiteness and ableism.
Here’s to being fully grounded and unshakeable.
Black Disabled Leadership
The curriculum is developed to promote a more accurate and complex understanding of
Black disabled people and our evolution and contributions to the United States.
The training combines the flexibility of online training with instructor lead skills.
The training examines the history of disability, services, practices, public policies and government agencies with the intersection of the Black disabled experience.
Participants become leaders who can train in the Black disabled experience. They are able to articulate the intersection of disability and the Black experience to both the Black and disabled communities.
