Smithsonian-EveryBody: An Artifact History of Disability in America
Many stories and events related to people with disabilities never make it into the history books or shared public memories. The traditional way to present history is through language—numerous books, movies, scholarly articles, and journals explore the history of people with disabilities in that way. Artifacts and exhibitions express information in a different way. The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History has been documenting the history of disability for over fifty years, and through this web exhibition, shares some of its collections on the topic.
