Black-and-white photo of a bearded Ed Roberts in his motorized chair at a demonstration. A demonstrator over his right shoulder holds sign, "Civil Rights For Disabled." Next to the photo reads: "And when there's maximum danger, and when our programs are in the most jeopardy, there's also maximum opportunity.
