Summary Pennhurst is a story of segregation, abandonment, and the meaning of home as told by the people that lived in, worked at, and crusaded for one of the largest and oldest intellectual and developmental disability institution in the United States. The facility, in its closing, challenged society's perception of those with intellectual disabilities and ultimately fought for equal rights, rights that are still being fought today.
