Recently Jason Harris, Founder of Jason’s Connection, spoke with Deena Greenberg as part of the New York Public Library’s Visible Lives: Oral Histories of the Disability Experience project. In this interview, he talks about his childhood, education, work, and experience of invisible disability.
VISIBLE LIVES: ORAL HISTORIES OF THE DISABILITY EXPERIENCE is an oral history project that works to both preserve and document a thematic history through personal recollections. This project will collect stories of people who are living with a disability and the Library will train community members to conduct these interviews. Interviews will be shared in a preservation archive at The Milstein Division and on the New York Public Library website. Public programs will also connect neighborhood residents and project participants.
VISIBLE LIVES is a project of Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library in Manhattan. A public archive will be kept at this local branch for future generations to listen to and research.
