Celebrating disability culture and the Down syndrome community
“Some of these (films) deal with discrimination and ableism and it can be upsetting at times, but sometimes it’s also very validating to see your experience reflected. Like, ‘Oh, yeah. I’ve been there.’“
Alabama Care anchor McCartney Hagar looks back on World Down Syndrome Day and its importance to the disability community and discusses music, movies, and television shows that address disability and/or include individuals with disabilities.
