Presented by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, a project of TransCen, Inc.
The 1960s Civil Rights Movement had significant impact on politics and culture in the United States, and laid the groundwork for other sociopolitical movements. This webinar will feature disability rights activist and author Judy Heumann, together with Dr. W.D. Palmer, a civil rights leader and expert on racism in America. They will discuss the ways that the Civil Rights Movement impacted and influenced the Disability Rights Movement that began in the 1970s. They also will offer their thoughts on how both movements have led to current conversations around the intersectionality of race and disability.
The webinar is captioned.
