This oral history project consists of over 18 hours of audio and/or video recorded interviews. This project places the experiences and perceptions of people with disabilities at the center of the American story. As a radical repositioning of American History, it casts into new light familiar stories (i.e. about overcoming the transition from student to professional), while uncovering new stories (i.e. the empowerment that comes with assistive technology that enables participation in sports). It also helps to make clear that there is no singular disability—or American—experience.
