25 years ago, July 26, 1990, on the White House lawn, President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans With Disabilities Act after decades of struggle by activists and leaders in the disability community. In the summer and fall of 2015, Oral History and Folklife Research interviewed Mainers who were involved in or impacted by the disability rights movement to get their perspective. This slide/audio presentation contains images and voices from the project. The project was made possible by the generous support of the Maine Humanities Council, the Maine Community Foundation and the Maine Arts Commission.
