Abstract / Summary
This collection of personal testimonies, newspaper articles, and official communications played a critical role in making the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 possible. For centuries, people with disabilities lived without rights, were oppressed by social stigma, rejected by wide swaths of culture, and were denied access to life, to liberty, and to the pursuit of happiness. It took a dedicated band of advocates and activists to create the cultural change needed to ensure such ostracization would no longer be deemed acceptable. These advocates and activists deserve to be honored and memorialized as veterans of democracy. Here are just a few of the many historical insights within the ADA Diaries that await your discovery.
