Abstract: Based on the pioneering New York Times series, About Us collects the personal essays and reflections that have transformed the national conversation around disability. Boldly claiming a space in which people with disabilities can be seen and heard as they are...not as others perceive them...About Us captures the voices of a community that has for too long been stereotyped and misrepresented. Speaking not only to those with disabilities, but also to their families, coworkers and support networks, the authors in About Us offer intimate stories of how they navigate a world not built for them. Since its 2016 debut, the popular New York Times... ...Disability... column has transformed the national dialogue around disability. Now, echoing the refrain of the disability rights movement, ...Nothing about us without us,... this landmark collection gathers the most powerful essays from the series that speak to the fullness of human experience...stories about first romance, childhood shame and isolation, segregation, professional ambition, child-bearing and parenting, aging and beyond.
