Summary
"Enabling Lives gives you a look at the disability civil rights movement through an intimate portrayal of the lives of several of its key leaders. The chapters of this book are separate, authorized biographies of such prominent figures as Frank Bowe, Tony Coelho, Justin Dart, Judy Heumann, Evan Kemp, and Harold Russell. Each one contributed countless hours of interviews, recollections, and "war stories" to the making of this important work, creating a legacy to be upheld by current and future leaders of the movement."--BOOK JACKET
