SY Disability History Exhibit

SY Campus Center Building from May 6-10

This powerful display chronicles 3,500 years of seldom-told history. From antiquity to the present, the exhibit brings viewers through an illustrated timeline that shows society’s attitudes and how they affect the lives of people with disabilities. The history exhibit is comprised of full color panels that use photos and text to convey information related to how individuals have been treated from a medical, moral, and social minority viewpoint. The panel content is also available through an accessible online interface available from http://dhss.alaska.gov/gcdse/Pages/history/index.aspx.
