3.  THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL INTERVIEW THAT I HAVE EVER DONE WITH A GUEST!! 
My guest today is Judith (Judy) Heumann, who is a lifelong advocate for the rights of disabled people.  She contracted polio in 1949 in Brooklyn, New York and began to use a wheelchair for  her mobility.  She was denied the right to attend school because she was considered at school to be a 'fire hazard' at the age 5.  Judith realized early on that she, working in collaboration  with other disabled people, had to play an advocacy role due to continuous discrimination.  She is now an internationally recognized leader in the disability rights community.  Her memoir, authored with Kristen Joiner, of Being Heumann."Being Heumann:  An Unrepentant Memoir of a Disability Rights Activist, published by Beacon Press and audio recorded by Ali Stroker, who is the first wheelchair actor to person on Broadway. Judy is featured in Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution 2020,an American award winning documentary film, available on Netflix, has been featured in numerous documentaries, was a Senior Fellow at the Ford Foundation and currently serves on a number of non-profit boards.  She is an inspiration to all of us..disabled or not!
