In Nowhere Man in a Nowhere Land, by Jean F. Andrews, we told the story of Junius Wilson. He was a Deaf, Black man living in the Jim Crow South. He spent 76 years in the State Hospital for the Colored Insane – wrongfully charged with rape.
On February 11th, HEARD and the Disability Law Society will host a lunchtime panel event featuring speakers familiar with Mr. Wilson and his story. Susan Birch, author of the book Unspeakable, and others will be speaking and answering discussion questions.
Location is the Washington College of Law – room 503, and the time is Noon on February 11th (a Tuesday).
I for one, wish I could be in attendance. It strikes me as a must see event.
Below is the HEARD invite as a PDF embed.
