Description

  • The University of Illinois "Whiz Kids" participate in a benefit basketball game sponsored by the Tallahassee Disabled Citizens of Action. A representative from the Tallahassee group describes the difficulties people with disabilities often encounter in their daily lives, such as a lack of ramps and other accommodations in buildings and societal prejudices. Other wheelchair-friendly activities such as square dancing, archery, football and stair climbing are also shown. A short interview with the "Whiz Kids" coach concludes the segment. Produced by WFSU-TV.
