Eddie Ndopu Sipping Dom Perignon Through a Straw: Reimagining Success as a Disabled Achiever

November 2, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

FREE

UCSB Arts & Lectures presents disability rights advocate Eddie Ndopu delivering a FREE public lecture titled Sipping Dom Perignon Through a Straw: Reimagining Success as a Disabled Achiever on Thursday, November 2 at UCSB Campbell Hall.

“One of the most powerful disabled people on the planet (Time magazine),” Eddie Ndopu is an award-winning global humanitarian and disability justice advocate. Diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at age 2 and given only five years to live, he has gone on to become a beacon of hope and possibility for people with disabilities around the world. His debut memoir, Sipping Dom Pérignon Through a Straw, captures his effervescent, indefatigable spirit. As a UN Global Changemaker, Ndopu actively demands equity for the world’s most marginalized segments of society and is a vital voice at the intersection of disability, sustainability and how we can best work together to make meaningful change for our planet’s future.
