What a wonderful celebration of AFB's 100th anniversary! You can still catch the replay of the “Art of Inclusion” concert and gala, co-hosted by Haben Girma, author of the best-selling memoir Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law, and our own president and CEO Kirk Adams, Ph.D. – with performances by Grammy-nominated artists Amadou & Mariam and Marcus Roberts, jazz pianist Matthew Whitaker, Tony-nominated actor and singer Sean Allan Krill, songwriter and singer Jennah Bell, hip-hop artist Aloe Blacc, and students from the New York Institute for Special Education Choir.
“Throughout our 100-year history, we have confronted challenges and overcome obstacles in the name of a singular, overarching goal: to create a world of no limits for people who are blind or low vision,” Adams said. “We look forward to sharing some of our most notable achievements and celebrating with an entertainment lineup that will not only make for a thrilling event, but underscore the theme of inclusivity that we strive to make an everyday reality.”
True to AFB’s commitment to inclusion, all of our centennial events will be accessible – and free – so everyone can share in the celebrations. Captions, audio description, ASL interpretation, and a full transcript will be provided.
