Disability History and Culture: provides a collection of resource links to websites that share the disability experience of people with disabilities through history and culture. Much legislation has come from the disability rights movement of the 1960's. Accessible features such as automatic doors on places of business and accessible facilities and curb cuts on city streets benefits all of society. Advocacy for civil rights for people with disabilities in the U.S. starts as far back as the revolutionary war in 1776. People have made a difference throughout history to advocate for the rights of peoople with disabilities. We celebrate their contributions to our society.
