The omission of race in Disability Studies and disability from Critical Race Studies has disastrous consequences for disabled people of color caught in the violent interstices of multiple differences. Learn about a 13 year old African American girl who is functionally illiterate and her mother’s combat with an uncaring Special Education bureaucracy that threatens to expel the girl from middle school.
