About the Event

GRIT - A Family Memoir on Adversity and Triumph, by Jeff Moyer, writer and recipient of awards for both songwriting and Disability History documentary production.

GRIT tells the monumental story of the Moyer family's struggle overcoming multiple disabilities and

inhuman institutionalization beginning before the Disability Rights Movement changed the American

landscape, and Jeff Moyer's role as the troubadour for, and a leader of that movement. In 1954, Mark

Moyer, Jeff's younger brother, was born with a severe cognitive disability. Two weeks before, at age

five, Jeff began to lose his vision due to a rare retinal disease that a clinician denied.

GRIT follows the parallel stories of Mark's suffering within barbaric state institutions and Jeff's

progressive blindness and maturation as an advocate leader within the Disability Rights Movement.
