Publisher's Summary

One in five people in the United States lives with a disability. Some disabilities are visible, others less apparent - but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture. Now, just in time for the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, activist Alice Wong brings together this urgent, galvanizing collection of contemporary essays by disabled people.

From original pieces by up-and-coming authors like Keah Brown and Haben Girma, to blog posts, manifestos, eulogies, Congressional testimonies, and beyond: This anthology gives a glimpse into the rich complexity of the disabled experience, highlighting the passions, talents, and everyday lives of this community. It invites listeners to question their own understandings. It celebrates and documents disability culture in the now. It looks to the future and the past with hope and love.

Read it. Learn from it. Grow from it!!

A must read. All of these stories and their experiences will develop you with a great understanding of the complexities and challenges of being disabled/living in and navigating disabled bodies and disabilities. A beautiful edit and collection of stories Alice! I only wish there were more and how wonderful would it be to really delve into many of them. This disability visibility project is a true recount into the complexities and realities of disabilities for so many millions across our globe. I particularly appreciated the variation of types, severities, differences and multitudes of everlasting intersectionalities, barriers and challenges faced by each and every one of us. Your work is a forced to be reckoned with Alice and I hope this is just one of many projects to come. Some of which (with your blessing of course) would love to be involved in! A fan, listening all the way from Melbourne, Australia 🇦🇺 (Akii @adventuress.akii)x
