January 23 (UPI) - Google is celebrating the 78th birthday of disability rights leader Ed Roberts with a new Doodle. Users visiting the Google home page on Monday will see artwork with the Roberts wheelchair, while giving a lecture to an audience alongside a full whiteboard. "After contracting poliomyelitis at age 14, Roberts was paralyzed from the neck down and was confined to a special wheelchair with respirator during the day and slept in an iron lung of 800 pounds at night. , Attending in person a few hours a week. His mother, Zone, encouraged him to persevere despite the odds, "wrote Google. "Roberts' activism began seriously already in high school when he was denied his diploma because of his inability to complete PE and Ed driver After the petition, he not only earned his diploma, went to college , Becoming the first student with severe disabilities to attend the University of California at Berkeley, where he led other Berkeley students with severe disabilities in creating the Physically Disabled Student Program, "continued. Finally, Roberts would gain a bachelor's and master's degree in political science from Berkeley, where he also headed the Berkeley Center for Independent Living at the school that "inspired many similar centers" in 1976. Other accomplishments include being appointed director of the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation California in 1976 by then Governor Jerry Brown and co-founder of the Institute of the Word in Disability in 1983. Google also shared a quote from Roberts' mother Zone in which he said of his son, "I saw Ed as he grew up Of a sports-loving child, Through somber days of hopelessness, in self-acceptance of his physical limitations as he learned what was possible for him.His years at UCB were great, as they both enjoyed their status as College and got in touch with their leadership qualities. It took great pleasure in seeing people with disabilities achieve greater acceptance. "
