Description

This historical documentary explores the Disability Rights Movement and features Fred Fay, who suffered a spinal cord injury as a teenager. Fay fought for decades for equal rights and opportunity for the disabled, and advocated for programs allowing the disabled to live independently. Leaders of the movement narrate the story of the drive for civil rights that resulted in some of the most important civil rights legislation in the United States' history.
