Texas Disability History Collection

The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) hosts the Texas Disability History Collection, an archival collection that "emphasizes the pioneering role played by a racially and ethnically diverse cast of Texan disability rights activists, many of whom attended or have worked at UT Arlington, in fighting for equal access to education, work, union membership, public transit, and sports." This collection, which features photographs, newsletters, publications, and much more, has been maintained and digitized by a number of individuals, including staff from UTA's Department of Digital Creation and Department of Special Collections and Archives. Visitors can browse items in this collection by categories including government, policy, and law; mass media, culture, and the arts; and social movements and advocacy. One highlight of this collection is a series of oral history interviews with disability rights advocates. The collection also features an especially robust collection of photographs and newspaper articles about disability and sports, including a video recording of the 2000-2001 National Wheelchair Basketball Championship.
