Latisha Anderson maneuvers into her wheelchair in the rain outside the downtown library in Greensboro. Anderson, who was paralyzed after a gunshot wound, is a nurse who was hired by Central Prison after a phone interview. When jail officials discovered she uses a wheelchair on the day of her orientation, they reneged on the contract. Anderson filed a complaint with the governor’s office and sent out a stream of emails, explaining that she works hard and desperately needs income to avoid living in a shelter. Eventually, the prison called her back. She starts working there Monday, March 16.
