Abstract / Summary
Welcome to UC Berkeley's website on the Disability Rights and Independent Living Movement. Discover our rich collection of primary sources exploring the social and political history of the disability movement from the 1960s to the present. Investigate related projects on artists with disabilities and the Self-Advocacy Movement. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote, "Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever. The urge for freedom will eventually come." For people with disabilities, the urge for freedom has arrived. The story of how this happened—a vital part of American history—is preserved in the oral histories, with audio and video clips, and in the archival papers of this collection.
