This was a pretty special week. I participated in a Poynter Workshop on Disability Journalism with some outstanding local reporters and the great Joe Shapiro, of NPR fame. Truly an honor. Later in the week, I spoke to educators and folks from the corporate world about disability and diversity. Meanwhile, though the semester’s labor is thick upon us, I wrote some blogs:
- Medievalists in Public! – Two medieval historians write about the humanities.
- Steve Silberman wins everything! – Author of Neurotribes wins prizes and shifts the paradigm.
- Cult of Compliance: 77 Year Old Blind Man Beaten – Blind man asks to feel officer’s badge to verify identity, is instead slammed down on a counter and bloodied.
- Cult of Compliance: Bus Driver Attacks Disabled Student – What I love here is how the other kids stand up for their classmate. Video matters.
I’ll have some published pieces next week, also I’ll be speaking at Harvard on November 18. More on that later.
