INTELLIGENT LIVES stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.
INTELLIGENT LIVES challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment and intimate relationships.
A free day of fun and learning for all children and families. Families will learn about diversity through interactive exhibits throughout the museum. This free event celebrates the broad spectrum of diversity in many forms including ethnicity, nationality, ability, religion, and family structure.
Visit the WisconSibs table at the event and make a poster, pick a prize, or tell us a story.
