TikTok activist to discuss anti-racism, disability justice at Brock event

The Brock University and Niagara communities are invited to attend an upcoming free virtual event featuring TikTok star and disability and inclusion activist Imani Barbarin.

Known online as @crutches_and_spice, Barbarin uses social media to share her experiences as a Black woman living with cerebral palsy and create conversations that engage the disability community.

As part of the Crutches&Spice, The World Isn’t Nice online event on Monday, March 7, Barbarin will discuss anti-racism and disability justice, Black women’s activism via TikTok and how humour can be used as a tool to actualize resistance and change. Following the talk, there will be a student panel discussion, with questions invited from the audience.

Held from noon to 1 p.m. on Zoom, the event is organized in collaboration with the Brock Student Justice Centre; Brock University Students’ Union; Centre for Pedagogical Innovation; President’s Advisory Committee on Human Rights, Equity and Decolonization (PACHRED); and PACHRED’s Sexual Violence Prevention Committee.

Register for the event on Eventbrite.
