Signs of Resistance: Disability Cultural History with Judy Heumann

  • Starts: 12:00 pm on Tuesday, September 14, 2021
  • Ends: 1:15 pm on Tuesday, September 14, 2021

In this first Learn More Series event of the year, we will hear from internationally recognized disability rights leader Judy Heumann. During this virtual fireside chat, Heumann will be in conversation with Dr. Swati Rani, Arts & Sciences Writing Program lecturer, to learn about her amazing story, trail-blazing activism, and what we might change at BU and beyond to better advocate for the dignity, rights, and respect of people with disabilities. The event includes time for audience Q&A.

If possible, we encourage you to view and explore Heumann's recent documentary "Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution" (2020) available on Netflix and free on YouTube, and Heumann's recent memoir titled "Being Heumann: An Unrepentant Memoir of a Disability Rights" (2020) ahead of the event.
