Breaking Stereotypes: How One SSU Student Lives with Disability

Kwame Alexander is a junior mass communications major concentrating in audio and video production at Savannah State University. He was born to his mother and father, Laquita Webb and Kwame Alexander, on June 14, 1994. During labor, Webb’s water did not break, Kwame lost oxygen to his brain and doctors were not able to remove him from the embryo sac in time. He is wheelchair bound because of it. Kwame is the only paraplegic full-time student at SSU who lives on campus.
