For Martin Luther King Day, we hear from an artist who makes civil rights heroes leap off the page.
After a five-hour flight from San Francisco to D.C., D’Arcee Neal, who has cerebral palsy and could not use the airplane bathroom, simply couldn’t wait any longer and crawled off the plane when the airline failed to bring him the wheelchair made to fit the plane’s aisle. Although federal laws require equal accessibility to transportation for people with disabilities, his experience is not uncommon. We talk with D’arcee and other disability rights activists about what happened to him and how similar events can be avoided in the future.
