How did the Access Living Blog Get It’s Name?

Lead On Honors Justin Dart, Jr.

The name of this blog is an acknowledgement of and salute to Justin Dart, Jr. A key architect of the Americans with Disabilities Act and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Justin Dart was a pioneer of the Disability Rights Movement. He voiced his message of personal empowerment, civil rights, full inclusion, and equality for people with disabilities across the United States and around the world. At the end of every speech, Dart would raise his fist and exclaim, “Colleagues, I love you . . . together we have overcome, together we shall overcome . . . Lead On!”


  1. Beth I am going to publish a post on my own "Safe & Sound" blog about Roger Ebert accepting the "Lead On!" award this Thursday night and am wondering if I can "borrow" a graphic of him from your blog to use for my post. Please email me separately to let me know if this is okay, and...Lead On!
