Apr 3, 2020

“I wanted to be part of the world, but I didn’t see anyone like me in it.”

On the heels of Woodstock, a group of teen campers are inspired to join the fight for disability civil rights. Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, now streaming on Netflix, is a spirited look at grassroots activism, executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. Join Judy Heumann, the galvanizing force for disability rights in the documentary, followed by directors Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht (a former camper) with Vanity Fair’s Richard Lawson for a conversation about this powerfully uplifting true story and its perennial capacity to inspire action.
