Fall 2020 Disability RAPP: The 30th Anniversary of the ADA
Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution
Just down the road from Woodstock, NY in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a parallel revolution blossomed in a ramshackle summer camp for disabled teenagers. Steeped in the humor and music of the era, Crip Camp explores the universal experience of summer camp awakenings that would transform lives and shape the future of the disability rights movement. Told from the point of view of former camper Jim LeBrecht, the film traces the journeys of campers up to the present day, in this compelling and untold story of a powerful journey towards inclusion.*
This spirited look at grassroots activism is executive produced by Barack and Michelle Obama.
