What is the Disability History Exhibit?

In Spring 2015, ORAHEAD purchased a copy of the Disability History Exhibit created and printed by Advocating Change Together (ACT). From the ACT website:

The Disability History Exhibit is a 22-panel collage that traces 3000 years of seldom-told history. From antiquity to the present, the exhibit brings viewers through an illustrated timeline that shows society’s attitudes and how they affect the lives of people with disabilities. Viewers experience powerful feelings as they notice similarities between ancient practices and modern stereotypes. The exhibit is accessible at many levels, striking a balance between easily grasped information and a comprehensive history viewed from multiple angles.
