9780595288939: Movie Stars and Sensuous Scars: Essays on the Journey from Disability Shame to Disability Pride

This 2003 essay compilation focuses on a journey, my own and that of others, from feeling shame about our disabilities to recognizing who we are with pride. This is not a journey without bumps, bruises--and scars--along the way. The discussion continues to this day, on social media, in books, essays and articles and poetry. Much of what is in this book paved the way for these current discussions.

About the Author:

Historian Steven E. Brown, retired Professor and Affiliate Faculty at the Center on Disability Studies at the University of Hawai`i, Manoa, is also Co-Founder, Institute on Disability Culture (instituteondisabilityculture.org).  Brown has worked throughout the US, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Norway, Saipan, Sweden, and Taiwan.

Review:

Steve Brown takes us on a profound journey of his many steps, the many turnings of the wheels that have borne him through his life to the present moment. His shock, his anger, his bitterness, and, ultimately, his courage in the face of adversity, not only educate but remind us of his fine humanity as well as our own. His advocacy doesn't preach but teaches. With words describing his life and the lives of those close to him, he opens a wide door through which any who can read or care to grow can pass.-Mark Medoff, Author of Children of a Lesser God"Disability culture is at the heart and soul of the disability movement, and in Steve Brown's writings we see that culture shining in all its glory. " -Mary Johnson, Editor, Ragged Edge magazine"Movie Stars and Sensuous Scars is a powerful book. I strongly relate to Steve's writing and ideas. The writing is clear and flows well. The ideas are beautifully radical. He gives true insight into disability and people with disabilities. His is a voice demanding to be heard."-David Pfeiffer, Disability Studies Quarterly editor
