The Documentary that should Be Made

Dear readers,

While some people watched Leaving Neverland and Surviving R. Kelly, people everywhere are not watching what happens when female with disabilities are preyed upon by their families or fellow disabled adults. A docuseries exposing this phenomenon should be made, no doubt on behalf of the many who didn’t report their abuse. While Michael and Robert Kelly’s abuse stories are shaking up the entertainment industry, people are not giving two cents to females with disabilities, those of us who are blind, deaf, or in wheelchairs. Or can’t speak. Or who can’t breathe without a ventilator. There is a wide variety of disabling condition in the human experience that must be covered, and we must make a docuseries about females with disabilities and their abuse stories. You would never believe what the failure to report means for all of us. Such a docuseries should include but should not be limited to the way in which families view the abuse, the community, and the nation. We need to expose the able world for seeing us as not valued. In any case, I will be singing with choir and doing the things I must do to bring the message out that all lives matter.
