I Want What You Have: The Book
Published to coincide with Disability History Month, I Want What You Have: Five Decades of Making It Happen
documents the inspiring story of the Camden Society and the people who built it.
A story of resistance, co-operation and progress, I Want What You Have
is a collection of memories, reflections and photographs that document the history of the Camden Society and celebrates our commitment to the human rights of people with learning disabilities. Including over 60 interviews with Camden Society members, personal stories are supported by archival research. Together they build a compelling history of the Society, from its beginnings in the 1960s through to the present day, giving a privileged insight into 50 years of learning disability history.
At 128 pages, and with absorbing photography, illustrations by Johnnie Gathercole and personal quotes, the book provides a wealth of fascinating detail. It is also accompanied by a DVD, Jack’s Legacy
, which includes Super 8 footage from the 1960s and 70s - a key part of our archives.
