EveryBody: An Artifact History of Disability in America is an online exhibit presented by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Visitors will browse through digitized galleries on everything from the evolution of the hearing aid and other communication devices to the people that were part of the movement.
It's Our Story is a fully accessible online database of personal testimonials and oral histories provided by individuals with disabiliites over the last several decades. The collection of testimonials, known as the "Discrimination Diaries", was started in the 1980s by Justin Dart Jr., a disability advocate who played a pivitol role in the passage of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act. After Mr. Dart's passing, a gentleman named Scott Cooper continued this journey with a video camera, capturing "oral histories" from more than one thousand disability advocates in more than 100 cities across the United States. Now, theses diaries and oral histories have been brought together in a database that will serve as our nation's single most significant collection of primary source records of the disability experience.
Parents United Together provides this Chronology of the Disability Rights Movements Timeline from 1817 to 2004.
