The lecture will be followed by Student Perspectives, the Ethel Louise Armstrong poster competition and reception.
Davis tells the story behind the passage and implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act: a model for civil rights laws around the world that is too often absent from the curriculum at home. Davis tells the rich human story of shifting social attitudes, of discrimination and advocacy in employment, education, and civic life. This powerfully told story promises to set the stage for the next generation of disability rights leaders.
