Defiant Lives Film Screening & Discussion

Uptown Campus
Diboll Gallery, 300 The Commons

Join Tulane University Libraries and The Goldman Center for Student Accessibility for a screening of civil rights documentary Defiant Lives followed by a facilitated discussion led by Dr. Krystal Cleary.

Defiant Lives is a triumphant film that traces the origins of the world-wide disability rights movement. It tells the stories of the individuals who bravely put their lives on the line to create a better world where everyone is valued and can participate. Featuring interviews and rarely seen archival footage, the film reveals how these activists fought to live outside of institutions, challenged the stigmas and negative image of disability portrayed by the media, demanded access to public transportation, and battled to reframe disability rights as a social responsibility relevant to us all.
