A Camp, a Campus, and a Disability Revolution

This exhibit explores the themes of the documentary Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, the featured work of the On the Same Page program this year. The film traces the Disability Rights Movement from Camp Jened, a camp for teens with disabilities in upstate New York, to UC Berkeley, and then to San Francisco for the 504 Sit-In, the longest sit-in at a federal building to date. The exhibit features primary sources from the UC Berkeley Library’s collections, including photos, memoirs, oral histories, and publications by allies such as the Black Panthers.

Exhibit tours: 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Friday, October 6.
