I know and worked with Michael Kennedy. He is a bold advocate for the rights of persons with disabilities. His work in self-advocacy, along with that of so many others, has brought about the changes in attitudes and practices that have released people out of institutions and into full membership in the community.

Michael's description of life in the Rome Developmental Center is chilling and accurate. I worked at RDC in the 1980's and can fully support his bleak description of the conditions there

A slim volume, but not a small story. Mr. Kennedy was in the trenches during the civil rights battle for people with disabilities. Amazing courage and spirit!
