Episode 4

Life on the Spectrum with Ash

Ash is a Jamaican British writer, podcaster and techie who is working to bridge the digital divide for marginalized groups and to bring awareness to the injustices faced by Black people every day.

This week we talk about the stigma of autism and how it is and isn’t accepted in Afro-Carribean, African and African American communities and yet how the two are inextricably linked for people like Ash who was diagnosed at age 15.
