Research in special education is historically rooted in quantitative methodology, often centering the views around dominant culture while overlooking scholars of color who may use less esteemed research methods but still generate important useful findings. Scholars of color live unique experiences that shape the logic and values fundamental to their research, providing legitimate inquiries and methodologies that provide insight and recommendations for improving the outcomes for students of color, including those with disabilities. This list represents a snapshot of the brilliant scholarship produced by a sample of scholars of color in the fields of race, language, and disability. Books, journal articles, and presentations are organized alphabetically. Journal articles and book titles denoted with an asterisk indicate co-authorship with additional authors. A more thorough reference list is found in the accompanying attachment.
