Everyone is encouraged to watch the movie “Crip Camp,” directed by Nicole Newnham and James Lebrecht, in advance. The movie is not yet available at the library, but is streaming on Netflix and for free on the Netflix YouTube channel. It is a very informative and powerful documentary on the movement that led up to the ADA.
