Ed Roberts : Ed Roberts: Google Doodle Honors Disability Activist
Google Doodle paid homage on Monday to what would have been the 78th anniversary of pioneering activist Ed Roberts - who struggled throughout his life for people with disabilities to have a full right to participate in society - with illustrations with the activist giving a Conference of his. The late American activist was paralyzed from the neck until after contracting polio at age 14. I saw Ed as he grew from a sports-loving child, through gloomy days of hopelessness, to self-acceptance of his physical limitations. As he learned what was possible for him to achieve, He said his mother Roberts Zone, according to Google. His debilitating condition forced him to use a wheelchair, and forced Roberts to sleep in an 800-pound iron lung at night. Roberts & # x27 Activism life began in high school when he applied to be blocked from earning his diploma because he had not completed driver education and physical education. After receiving his diploma, Roberts became the first student with severe disabilities to attend the University of California, Berkeley. In Berkeley, Roberts & # x27 Activism took shape. There he led other Berkeley students with severe disabilities in creating the Physically Disabled Student Program, the first of its kind, Google writes. Roberts went on to receive his bachelor's and master's degree in political science from the university, later re-directing the Berkeley Center for Independent Living - a project that became a model for disability rights around the world. Became director of the California Department of Vocational Rehabilitation in 1976 and co-founded the World Institute for Disability in 1983. He died in 1995.
