Editor’s Note: ACB’s Board of Publications introduces a new segment on our Voices blog. We’re calling it “Member on the mic.” As with many projects within The American Council of the Blind, we are grateful to so many individuals helping us bring this idea to reality! Thank you Anthony Corona for proposing the idea and conducting many wonderful interviews. Thank you Tim Cummings and Byron Lee for your audio editing expertise. Lisa Brooks, thank you for transcribing Lucy’s audio for the first Member on the Mic installment.
This first segment introduces us to ACB member Lucy Edmonds. Listen to Lucy’s story below, or, if you prefer, download the text transcript.
