I recommend four books.One is "Thats not in my American history book". It has great facts about American history and is way more fun then any high school history class I have ever been in. You learn a lot of the reasons behind are National myths.You know for example that Betsy Ross didn't sew? The first American black? Another book I am readying is a memoir called "Two old to die young" My friend Harriet Mcbride Johnson wrote it. Its about her life with a disability and what was expected of her. The third book I recommend is called "No pity" by Joseph Shapiro Its about the history of the disability rights movement as seen through the eyes of a an able bodied journalist. The last book I would recommend is "Choosing Naia" by Michael Zukoff its about a biracial couple who decide to continue with a pregnancy even though they know the child will have Down Syndrome. Read that one very near a box of tissues. I hope these recommendations help you.
