An online exhibit showcasing the Disability Rights Movement in the United States.
The Museum of Disability History is a museum related to the history of people with disabilities from medieval times to the present era.
The National Consortium on Leadership and Disability for Youth (NCLD/Y) serves as a national youth-led information, training, and resource center. Provides detailed timelines on disability history.
This collection of articles, videos, music, artifacts, ephemera and more represents over 30 years of history of a grassroots disability rights organization that is still going strong.
These robust, ready-to-use classroom lessons offer breadth and depth, spanning essential social justice topics and reinforcing critical social emotional learning skills.
Ten on-line lessons are now available intended for high school juniors and seniors and first and second-year undergraduates. Although not tied to the Broken Bodies Suffering Spirits exhibit specifically, the lessons address a range of topics suitable for study by students in the humanities and sciences.
Many stories and events related to people with disabilities never make it into the history books or shared public memories. Familiar concepts and events such as citizenship, work, and wars become more complicated, challenge our assumptions about what counts as history, and transform our connection with each other when viewed from the historical perspective of people with disabilities, America’s largest minority.
Our collection of K-12 curricula include timely lesson plans and multi-grade units that promote critical thinking and assist educators in teaching current events topics through the lens of diversity, bias and social justice.

Ten on-line lessons are now available intended for high school juniors and seniors and first and second-year undergraduates. Although not tied to the Broken Bodies Suffering Spirits exhibit specifically, the lessons address a range of topics suitable for study by students in the humanities and sciences. Developed by Peter Carmichael, PhD, Robert C. Fluhrer Professor of Civil War Studies and the Director of Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College, each lesson follows a common format featuring learning objectives, time required, key words, background, recommended websites, and Pennsylvania Education Standards.
All require students to read and analyze primary source documents, which are included as attachments to each lesson. These documents include correspondence or memoranda, medical treatises, case studies, or handbooks from the war. The objective of all lessons is to stimulate interest in primary historical sources—those written by the participants to the war—and develop skills in reading and analyzing them to gain historical understanding. To our knowledge, nothing comparable exists on the Internet.
