Join us for an exciting and ground-breaking evening where activist historians with learning disabilities talk about their work.
People with learning disabilities have been excluded from their own history more than any other group. A new generation of activist historians are working with co-researchers to lay claim to their history, and tell it their way.
- Paul Christian and Sue Ledger – the black history of learning disability
- My Life My Choice and Lee Humber – participation of people with learning disabilities in World War I
- The Antonia Grandoni Project team – Antonia Grandoni’s story: bringing the past into the present
- Nathaniel Lawford and Jan Walmsley – finding Grace Eyre and the origins of Shared Lives
- Panel presentations followed by audience questions and discussion
