Co-sponsored by Disability Rights North Carolina (DRNC), this indoor screening will feature a recent interview with acclaimed international disability rights advocate and Crip Camp star Judy Heumann and Virginia Knowlton Marcus, DRNC’s CEO, reflecting on Judy’s incredible experiences at the helm of a revolution.

Crip Camp is the story of how teens with disabilities became revolutionary activists and shaped a culture of love, pride and self-acceptance. “Crip Camp is both a gripping look at the history of the disability rights movement and a timely call to action, urging us to explore our own duty to fight for the dignity of all people.” —President Barack Obama, Executive Producer
