In July 2023, I led two tours highlighting the braille and tactile exhibits that were installed at the FDR memorial last year. The tours were for 60 K-12 teachers who participated in professional development workshops focused on the disability history of the FDR Memorial and FDR presidency. The workshops were supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
In my tour, I showed the teachers the difference between the readable braille on the new exhibits when compared to the artistic braille carved into the walls of the memorial.
