Jason's Connection Founder Jason Harris Speaks to the NYPL for the Visible Lives Project

15 Apr 2015 by Jason's Connection

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.
