Blind Justice: Jacobus tenBroek and the Vision of Equality
Floyd Matson (au); Marc Maurer (pf)
tenBroek (1911-1968) was a pioneer in organizing the blind to claim their constitutional rights. This bio. tells how he inspired a new social movement & changed the landscape of opportunity for blind as well as sighted Americans. At age 7, tenBroek lost his sight, which changed his life but not his intrinsic qualities: a brilliant mind, a steel will, & an activist spirit. He earned both doctoral & law degrees, but found the door to a college teaching position closed because he was blind. Eventually he was offered a position at UC-Berkeley, where he taught for a quarter of a century. He became a leader of the organized blind & also fought for equality under the law for other minority groups. He broke new ground in civil rights, social welfare, & family law. Photos.
