Being Heumann by Judith Heumann

( ) When we think of the civil rights movement, the disabled population is not necessarily who we think of first. Most commonly, race and gender are the equality activists at the forefront of our mind. However, there’s a less spoken about revolution that went on for the handicapped community not so long ago. Judith Heumann was one of the trail blazers, and she had an outpouring of community support behind her.

This novel chronicles her life (as a memoir usually does) especially highlighting any factors that help develop her political career. If you’re curious about social justice movements or accessibility requirements, this may give you some beneficial insights.
