Celebrating Black History Month
NCLD Celebrates Black History Month
In recognition and celebration of Black History Month, the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) is magnifying resources, conversations, and key figures that illustrate the ongoing and current significance of the African American voice within the disability rights movement.
In partnership with The Education Trust we launched a series of conversations that examine the challenges of self-advocacy for Black girls with learning disabilities. Watch here.
