Today, I was invited to a White House event celebrating African American History Month. What makes this even unique and historic was that it brought together advocates from both the civil rights and the disability communities; youth, providers and policymakers, in a forum focused on the intersection of race and disability. I know at some point I will have lots to say about this other than a comment about how my dog threw up at the White House (and yes, she really did), but for now, I’ll let the pictures do the talking for me. 🙂
You can find out some more of the details of the event from:

Note: I also need to caption and describe these images before I forget what they’re of!
