Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

What does autism have to do with race? It seems simple, but it is extremely complicated. I urge you to read this anthology and explore this in depth as you dive into the hearts of the authors. They are yellow, brown, red, black, and multi-hued; they are young and old; they share their purpose, their passion, and their pain. But before you embark upon this journey, I have a "spoiler."
 
On every page, in every account, from every contributor you will find one profound, universal theme threaded silently and artfully throughout the entire anthology. Again and again, you will find that the answer to the aforementioned question, now unspoken, "What does autism have to do with race?" is a gentle, but resounding,"Everything."

- From Preface by Morénike Giwa Onaiwu

About the Author

Lydia X. Z. Brown is a genderqueer and transracially/transnationally adopted east asian autistic activist, writer, and speaker whose work has largely focused on violence against multiply-marginalized disabled people, especially institutionalization, incarceration, and policing. They have worked to advance transformative change through organizing in the streets, writing legislation, conducting anti-ableism workshops, testifying at regulatory and policy hearings, and disrupting institutional complacency everywhere from the academy to state agencies and the nonprofit-industrial complex. At present, Lydia is Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council chairperson, and Autism Women's Network board member. 

E. Ashkenazy seeks to promote widespread understanding of the needs and rights of autistic individuals, especially females. E.A. is the Community Council Chair for Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education. She is highly involved in Community Based Participatory Research, and served on the Community Advisory Board for the Partnering with People with Developmental Disabilities to Address Violence Project via the University of Montana Rural Institute. E.A. has also served on community advisory boards addressing disability and healthcare, as well as disability and pregnancy. 

Morénike Giwa Onaiwu is a community advocate, writer, Christian, mom, and educator. American-born to immigrant parents, she feels that her role as a Black Autistic woman in a multicultural, multinational, neurodiverse, serodifferent family fuels her human rights advocacy. Morénike has several years of program management experience and is involved in a myriad of social justice activism endeavors including HIV-related advocacy, disability rights, learning via technology, research, gender and racial justice, and promoting inclusion. She has also written for and/or been featured in numerous blogs, magazines, and other platforms.
