Civil rights are taken for granted in the United States. However, for a diverse population of over 54 million Americans — those with disabilities — it is an ongoing struggle. “Lives Worth Living” is television’s most comprehensive history of the disability rights movement. It opens a window into the world of citizens with an unwavering determination to live their lives like everyone else. It is also a journey through the past when millions of people lived without access to schools, work, public transportation and housing. Charismatic leaders of the movement narrate the story of this long, hard, and successful drive for civil rights that brought together a once fragmented population into a powerful coalition that created some of the most far reaching civil rights legislation in our nation’s history…and around the world.
