In this biography of her parents, Maxine Childress Brown pays tribute to the tenacity and dignity with which her mother and father - both of whom were deaf and African American - lived and raised three hearing daughters in Washington, D.C. during the deeply segregated decades of the mid-twentieth century. "On the Beat of Truth" is a stunning personal history, reflecting upon the complex struggles encountered at the tenuous intersection of race and disability.
