. AMC Theatres apologizes for kicking out a civil rights leader for using his own chair « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR – Civil rights leader Bishop William J. Barber III and NAACP North Carolina are calling on AMC Theaters to improve accessibility for patrons with disabilities after an incident this week. Barber, who suffers from ankylosing spondylitis, a type of arthritis that causes inflammation in the joints and ligaments of the spine, was escorted out of an AMC movie theater on Tuesday for bringing in his own chair to watch a showing of “The Color Purple” with his 90-year-old mother in the handicapped section. Staff there claimed the chair would create a fire hazard and wouldn’t allow him to use it.
