Radio Series on Disability
Going back as early as the 1800s, a radio series at http://www.straightaheadpictures.org/beyond-affliction/intr_pre.html is giving listeners an idea of how society's view of disability has changed with time. Beyond Affliction: The Disability History Project presents information from primary source documents in a four-hour radio series, which is made up of individual shows, including Inventing the Poster Child, The Overdue Revolution, and Tomorrow's Children. Tapes and transcripts can be ordered via this site, and clips of the shows can be accessed through the "Real Audio" link. To learn about the history of disability in the United States, visit Beyond Affliction at http://www.straightaheadpictures.org/beyond-affliction/intr_pre.html, or check out the sound recording at CeDIR today. You can also find it at a library near you by visiting worldcat.org.
