We Will Talk About These Days
In March of 2020, much of Philadelphia shut down in response to COVID-19. Among the most vulnerable to the effects of the virus are people with disabilities.
We Will Talk About These Days is collection of interviews about living with disability while navigating a pandemic.
Interviewees include an ASL interpreter charged with communicating health and safety information to the Deaf community; an artist with Down Syndrome unable to work in her studio; a young woman hoping to leave an institution for a new life in the community; an essential worker weighing the risk and rewards of his work; and immigrants in search of better lives for their children with disabilities. The stories they tell contrast systemic inequities with moments of hope—even joy.
