|A CALL OF CONSCIENCE: Pennhurst State School & Hospital|
Hidden in a remote river bend in Pennsylvania 10,500 people were forced to call this place 'home'. Now neglected, decaying and hidden beneath decades of over-growth, one of America's most dramatic civil rights stories awaits discovery. A Call of Conscience: Pennhurst State School and Hospital uncovers the untold story of the birth place of the Civil Rights Movement of the Intellectually Disabled. Supported by their families and community, this group of residents united and overcame the label of 'retarded' to lead and win one of the greatest civil victories for the disabled in U.S History. The result of their struggle not only won their freedom but positively transformed the social landscape of America forever!
