Joyce welcomes acclaimed disability scholar and author, Lennard J. Davis who will discuss his book, Enabling Acts: The Hidden Story of How the Americans With Disabilities Act Gave the Largest US Minority Its Rights.  The book is the first significant book on the history and impact of the ADA - the "eyes on the prize" moment for disability rights.  This is the first  riveting account, behind-the-scenes and on-the-ground narrative of how a band of people with disabilities  managed to make an alliance with conservative Republicans to bring about a truly bipartisan bill. Mr. Davis will discuss the book and reflect on ADA25 during the show.
