Independent Lens Episode: "On a Roll: Family, Disability and the American Dream"

Season 6, Episode 13
Episode Synopsis: “On a Roll: Family, Disability and the American Dream” profiles Greg Smith, a relentless campaigner for the rights of the disabled. It's a lively hour: Smith, who has muscular dystrophy, calls himself “a wheelchair dude with attitude,” and while he talks matter of factly about his sex life and failed marriage, he rails against obstacles that those who aren't disabled might never consider.
Original Air Date: Feb 15, 2005
