Disability Awesome: In A Different Key / Premiering On PBS

Welcome to the Disability Awesome segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Disability Awesome will feature a person or persons with mental and / or physical disabilities who are doing awesome and great things! As editor / publisher Nathan Young has an disability (Autism), we here at Geek Alabama love it when others when disabilities do great things!

A documentary movie about Autism is about to be shown on PBS.  In A Different Key features a mother who tracks down the first person ever diagnosed with autism in rural Mississippi to learn whether his life story holds promise for her own autistic son. Her journey exposes a startling record of cruelty and kindness alike—framed by forces like race, money, and privilege. She ultimately finds hope for a future with greater acceptance for those who are considered different.

In A Different Key premieres on PBS Tuesday, December 13th at 8 pm Central.
