: A must-watch dive into disability rights history, this fantastic doc tells the story of the seminal influence of a camp for people with disabilities and the incredible fight through the 1960s & 1970s to push us to where we are today.”

“People with disabilities are the largest minority group in the US but remain mostly invisible, partly because so few of us are in leadership positions. We are rarely in boardrooms, featured on TV or in movies, or occupying positions of political power.”

How will we get through this? ”For those who are able-bodied, at least for the time being, there is a master class in ferocious fragility being offered out there by the chronically ill and overlooked in our communities.” via
