Americans with Disabilities Act – Building Strong Communities

  Although it’s early in the process, I’m really enjoying my time in the Flagship program of Leadership Winston Salem.

Observations From Below: Bearing the Cross

  Recently, I had posted on Facebook that I was experiencing writer’s block. That was probably closer than half right.  I was experiencing a lack of ideas, which I guess is the definition of writer’s block. But I think I had an idea that was too intimidating to write down.

Observations From Below: I’m no Blowhard

I’ve always found it interesting how my life works out sometimes. Almost like the universe is going to send me a message.

Observations From Below: If We Can Roll Together, Why Can’t We Rock Together?

To stay motivated lately, I have been reading a lot of biographies and autobiographies of civil rights leaders (especially in the realm of disability rights). Over the weekend, I finished a book called “Fading Scars: My Queer Disability History,” written by Corbett Joan O’Toole. I enjoyed the book a great deal, but I also found […]
