Starting early for an expanded hour from 2-3 pm PST, 94.1 fm, KPFA.
Three award-winning films made by young disabled women in Chicago.Â FeFe is a word for female, and these women live up their names by telling folks how it is when it comes to being a young African-American woman with disabilities growing up in the Windy City. Funny, truthful and poignant, these films ooze with disability pride and empowerment:
–Beyond Disability: The FeFe Story
–Why They Gotta Do Me Like That:Â The FeFes Take on Bullying
–Doing It:Â Sex, Disability and Videotape
This trailer has been muted by YouTube.Â Luckily, it’s captioned for both hearing and the deaf.
Speaking of empowerment, Â how about feeling empowered to strap a Pushing Limits bumper sticker to your wheel chair, cane, Segway or hot red convertible.Â During the show,Â you can stock up on stickers, Empowered FeFes DVDâ€™s, and other items, like this lovely rhyolite necklace donated by Robin Moore.Â All will be available if you donate to the radio station that is empowered by sweet radicalâ€“left wing goodness for the past 60+ years, KPFA.
