VSU Disability History Exhibit Covers 3,000 Years

VALDOSTA -- Valdosta State University's Access Office and Office of Social Equity are co-sponsoring a Disability History Exhibit, which will be on display each day beginning at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 25-26 in the University Center entrance five and Jan. 27-30 in Palms Dining Hall.

The Disability History Exhibit is part of the overall "Tunnel" event and shows what life was like in the past for people with developmental and other disabilities. The exhibit is a 22-panel collage that traces 3,000 years of rarely told history. From the past to the present, the exhibit takes visitors through an illustrated timeline showing society’s attitudes and how they affect the lives of people with disabilities.
