ADA in the Arts

Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution – Panel Discussion

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

Co-presented with Film at Lincoln Center

In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Lincoln Center’s ADA in the Arts features programs with and for people with disabilities.

Thirty years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, filmmakers Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht reflect upon the disability rights movement through the lens of their critically acclaimed film, Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution. This remarkable documentary tells the story of how Camp Jened cultivated a community for teens with disabilities who would go on to team together to fight for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Timed to this historic anniversary, the filmmakers join us for a moderated discussion with disabled advocates as they pass the torch to the next generation of disability leaders.
