Melvin Juette has said that becoming paralyzed in a gang-related shooting was "both the worst and best thing that happened" to him. The incident, he believes, surely spared the then sixteen-year-old African American from prison and/or an early death. It transformed him in other ways, too. He attended college and made wheelchair basketball his passion - ultimately becoming a star athlete and playing on the U.S. National Wheelchair Basketball Team. In "Wheelchair Warrior", Juette re-constructs the defining moments of his life with the assistance of sociologist Ronald Berger. His poignant memoir is bracketed by Berger's thoughtful introduction and conclusion, which places this narrative of race, class, masculinity, and identity into proper sociological context, showing how larger social structural forces defined Juette's experiences.
