BEING HEUMANN An Unrepentant Memoir of a Disability Rights Activist

by | Read by Ali Stroker

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs.. • Unabridged • © 2020

With an energetic pace and a youthful voice, Ali Stroker narrates disability rights activist Judith Heumann's memoir. The audiobook spans the author's life as a polio survivor who started out having to face wheelchair barriers at home, in her neighborhood, at school, and at university. Heumann and Stroker both prove engaging as Heumann recounts how her forbearance with limitations ran out and she turned to political activism that eventually led to the now 30-year-old Americans with Disabilities Act. She was also involved with CRIP CAMP, a current Netflix documentary. Along with her friend and mentor, the late Ed Roberts, Heumann is a freedom fighter Americans need to know. This audiobook makes getting acquainted a delight. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
