KNOX ROXS is a publication that is advocating acceptance for the beauty of nuerodiversity and breaking the stigma of racialized Autism through documentation and text that follows one very special boy; Knox, A 5-year old black Autistic child.
Autism is a beautifully complex cognitive, invisible disability that we are honored to represent in this book. Jennifer White-Johnson, mother to Knox, has made it her creative passion to dive into the complexities of Knox’s neurodiversity. Often the neurodiverse community is excluded from artistic narratives and creative spaces, we are excited to embrace this groups complexities as we continue to embrace our own. This project comes together with her own personal art practice of photography that she uses as a means to allow herself to not be afraid to let the world in and allow for her son’s story to become a force for healing.
An Autistic person should not be limited by popular opinion of how they should operate, or be limited by the ideas others have regarding their abilities. Autistic voices should be included and not excluded in any public discourse on Autism. Advocate acceptance!
