***

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

Subject: From the Ohio Membership Committee "Blindness: of Vision and Vultures" By Dr. Kenneth Jernigan

Ohio,

Below is an audio of Dr. Kenneth Jernigan giving a banquet speech in Las Angeles in 1976.

If you want to know more about the philosophy of the National Federation of the Blind and the principal we stand on. I challenge you to listen to this profound and accurate account of why we fight so hard not to take a back seat in life.

This speech also mentions Barbara Pierce who had, in my opinion, one of the worst experiences in a cab with an ignorant driver.

Curious? Just listen!

Click or cut and paste the audio version!

Suzanne
