Sat 2nd April is Autistic Appreciation Day: Highlighting Black Autistic Voices

Hi folks,

Saturday 2nd April is World Autism Awareness Day (or what a lot of us autistic folk like to rebrand Autistic Appreciation Day). You’ve probably heard me talk a lot about what it’s like to be autistic and neurodivergent in the arts and culture space.

But it’s not time for me to talk. It’s time to clear a space for some black autistic voices. Autistic BIPOC folks in the neurodivergent community and media don’t get heard anywhere near enough.  So here are some to get you started

Read some, share some, learn some.
