The quest for social equality for people who have disabilities is a story that begins in the earliest years of the American experience. Marked by both great achievement as well as some of the darkest policies imaginable, the struggle to remove physical, institutional, and attitudinal barriers faced by people who have disabilities is a dynamic story of disappointment and perseverance that continues to today.

This webinar series provides an educational framework for students, social service professionals, family members, and most of all, people who experience disability. We will explore the roots of the disability rights movement and the historical turning points that shape contemporary policy. Dr. Logue’s conversational style and deep subject matter knowledge make for an intriguing and thought-provoking webinar experience.

Join author and educator Dr. Larry Logue as he tells the story of the disability rights movement in a four-part webinar series, “History of Disability Rights”. Dr. Logue takes us on a fascinating journey; exploring the policies, legislation, movements, and personalities that have left their mark on this civil rights movement.
