Seeing in the Dark: Longmore Institute Exhibit Celebrates ADA Milestone

Thursday, August 20, 2015
BAY AREA REPORTER -- To honor and celebrate this often overlooked piece of American history, the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University has put together an exhibit called “Patient No More,” which can be viewed at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley. “Knowing that the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act was approaching in 2015,” said Emily Beitiks, associate director at the Paul K. Longmore center, “an exhibit to celebrate disability and the disability rights movement seemed like a way to forward our mission of promoting empowering stories of what people with disabilities bring to the table.” The exhibit, which received a Cal Humanities Stories Grant and support from the East Bay Community Foundation, features an amazing collection of photos that beautifully capture every facet of this part of disability history.
