Duration: 10 hours 15 minutes
From the Periphery consists of more than thirty first-person narratives of everyday people who describe what it's like to be treated differently by society because of their disabilities. The stories are raw and painful, but also surprisingly funny and deeply inspiring. The oral histories describe anger, independence, bigotry, solidarity, and love-in the family, at school, and at the workplace. Inspired by the oral historians Studs Terkel and Svetlana Alexievich, From the Periphery will become a classic collection that increases understanding of the lived experiences of people with disabilities.
