"A groundbreaking collection of first-person writing on the joys and challenges of the modern disability experience: Disability Visibility brings together the voices of activists, authors, lawyers, politicians, artists, and everyday people whose daily lives are, in the words of playwright Neil Marcus, "an art . . . an ingenious way to live." According to the last census, one in five people in the United States lives with a disability. Some are visible, some are hidden--but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture. Now, just in time for the thirtieth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, activist Alice Wong brings together an urgent, galvanizing collection of personal essays by contemporary disabled writers. There is Harriet McBryde Johnson's "Unspeakable Conversations," which describes her famous debate with Princeton philosopher Peter Singer over her own personhood. There is columnist s. e. smith's celebratory review of a work of theater by disabled performers. There are original pieces by up-and-coming authors like Keah Brown and Haben Girma. There are blog posts, manifestos, eulogies, and testimonies to Congress. Taken together, this anthology gives a glimpse of the vast richness and complexity of the disabled experience, highlighting the passions, talents, and everyday lives of this community. It invites readers to question their own assumptions and understandings. It celebrates and documents disability culture in the now. It looks to the future and past with hope and love."--… (mere)

These stories are so personal and but so important to be shared. Disability can happen to any of us, and likely will at some point in our lives, so the fact that disabled people are shoved to the margins of society should concern everyone. Every life is just as valuable as the next, no matter their abilities, and access to every part of life should be a right. ( )

incredible essay collection!! if you're thinking about picking it up let this be your sign. i understand everyone's going to have their own opinions but i think it's missing the point any time someone critiques the quality of writing or says it 'really shows that all of them aren't authors'; it's not supposed to be perfect prose, it's real people getting to share the reality of their lives. i'd highly recommend looking further into the work of each author (info about each located in the back 'about the contributors' section), as well as checking out the extensive further reading list compiled at the end.

3.5 stars

A collection of 39 essays of various lengths, formats, intended audience, and tone, I didn’t love every essay—or think every one was written for my consumption (as a nondisabled person)—but this is a book I’m glad I read. Besides the essays I thought were really good, the further reading section at the end of the book gave me lots of ideas for what I can read to learn more about disabled people’s lives.

Nine of the essays I thought were the most eye-opening and informative were the following:
”Unspeakable Conversations,” by Harriet McBride Johnson
“The Isolation of Being Deaf in Prison,” by Jeremy Woody
“I’m Tired of Chasing a Cure,” by Liz Moore
“We Can’t go Back,” by Ricardo T. Thornton Sr.
“Why My Novel is Dedicated to My Disabled Friend Maddy,” by A.H. Reaume
“How a Blind Astronomer Found a Way to Hear the Stars,”by Wanda Diaz-Merced
“Falling/Burning,” by Shoshanna Kessock
“On NYC’s Paratransit, fighting for safety, respect, and human dignity,” by Britney Wilson
“The Fearless Benjamin Lay,” by Eugene Grant

This is a vital collection of essays and accounts which make up a cross section of many facets of the disability justice movement in the 21st century. It shows the diversity of the community and includes stories told be everyday people and those on the front lines in the disability justice movement. I respected that it included content warnings at the starts of essays which covered particularly sensitive topics. While I felt some pieces weren’t as fully developed as others, I can’t argue with the inclusion of any of the pieces. It’s an excellent collection and one of the best reads this year. ( )

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
Disability is not a brave struggle or "courage in the face of adversity." Disability is an art. It's an ingenious way to live.
—Neil Marcus

Remember, you weren't the one

Who made you ashamed,

But you are the one

Who can make you proud.
—Laura Hershey

The word special, as it is applied to disability, too often means "a bit shit."—Stella Young
