James has a compelling story to tell. There is an urgency in that it is a story that is quickly being forgotten in the flow of history. While it is a compelling story, it is also a success story.

James has worked for the Department of Education for over 30 years. However, the first 17 years of his life were lived in horrific circumstances and his survival as a remarkably kind, generous, and happy individual is a triumph of an extraordinary will to live and to learn. His success is also a testament to the support of some extraordinary people working at the dawn of the disability rights movement.
