i am very ok and i'm really going to be in the stream making the world a more excessive or an inclusive place for people with disabilities when i talk about that with disability rights attorney. and we want to hear your questions and your comments on improving accessibility tweet them to us stream or share them in our lives up.
4:22 am
in a new memoir the 1st deaf blind graduate of harvard law school reflects on childhood or try an ethiopian identity and journey to becoming an outspoken advocate for disability rights while a student at harvard helped develop the digital braille device that allows her to read information typed to her through a computer keyboard today she travels around the world promoting a message of inclusive ety and shares her life experiences as a deaf blind black woman and a child of refugees or has received honors from leaders including former u.s. president barack obama and german chancellor angela merkel she has also become one of the leading voices in improving the accessibility of the digital world life so far is told in the book hub and the deaf blind woman who conquered harvard law. joins us today with her take this clear balde also our viewers might notice the box in the corner of the screen today and that is because our conversation is being
4:23 am
interpreted in american sign language everyone welcome to the stream. of it i'm going to get started with a beautiful picture that you shared your cell phone father's day which is a picture of your dad and he's reading and he's asleep oh your sleep lying on top of him and he's trying to read and it just gave us some insight into the closeness that you have with your parents can you tell us more about that. yes so my parents love than it dora me they also are a little protective like many parents and growing up we struggled with the challenge of my parents wanting to keep me safe and protected and me wanting to experience as much as the world as possible i'm deaf blind i have limited vision
4:24 am
and hearing and there are a lot of negative stereotypes about what people with disabilities can and can't do and that's the heart to the arguments i've had with my parents growing up there was a situation where i wanted to help build a school in mali west africa and my parents said no it's not c and i told them you are from africa my dad grew up in ethiopia my mom grew up in is eritrea how can they tell me it's not seen it was because they were feeling protective as parents it had nothing to do with africa even if i was building a school in say montana i was sure they would have told me no it's not saying you so i tried in this is a story of advocacy so i advocated and i told them i know my abilities i know
4:25 am
what i can and can't do and i can build a school and they still said no i was really frustrated i'm sure lots of kids can relate to this wanting to there's a thing in your parents saying no so i asked myself how can i convince them they're not believing me even though i feel like an expert when it comes to my abilities so i asked myself who else can help convince them that i can do this. so we brought in the program manager who takes students to developing countries to help build schools and she sat down at length with me and my parents and they asked her how can happen build a school she can't see how without work and the manager told them i don't know but we'll try we'll find a way it's ok if you don't know how to do something as long as you try to seek
4:26 am
solutions as long as you try to figure it out and make it work and we did i went to mali i helped to build a school and i literally mean building a school we were shoveling making bricks digging the latrine so that kids in this village in mali can could get an education the harder the program is about teaching high school students that we can have an impact in the world even if you have a disability you still can have an impact in the world when i came back home my parents were more convinced but only slightly even even after graduating from law school there's still nervous and still productive.
4:27 am
that probably will never end as long as they're your parents have and i wanted to also bring in our community here we got a tweet so many people follow your work online love what you stand for and love what you advocate for this is a brit hume who's one of them as it were him on twitter says i watched your text talk and i must say you were super intelligent we both know too disabilities are the same we all have our uniqueness but how did you cope with able ism growing up as a child in the streets. able ism is a problem all over the world in the united states in eritrea and ethiopia able ism is the believe that people with disabilities are inferior to the non-disabled so employers thinking don't hire someone with a disability they won't do the job are teachers thinking we're not letting kids
4:28 am
with disabilities in our class because they can't learn those are harmful assumptions and we need to get rid of them when i was a kid i didn't know how to advocate i missed out on so many things my high school graduation there were so many speeches that i missed i had no idea what they were saying because i didn't know how to albuquerque and slowly growing up i started to. then i started to have more access and not only need every time i advocated i removed a barrier and it helped the students who came after me that's really what drove me to become a lawyer realizing that when i create positive achievement and benefits our whole community. is a way that you write that takes us into your world we see inside the way that you off thinking we see through your eyes we see what you see and sometimes it's not
4:29 am
that much we try and understand the world from your perspective so for instance in your living room there's a step that you want to show exactly where that step is so you do a job so you can pretty much guess where you think that step is and then you jump so you are navigating the world and we are navigating the world as a reader in your memoir through you. that way of describing things for people who do not have disabilities how have they reacted to understanding more from your perspective. so there's so many ways to experience the world. seeing is a one way if you don't have access to visual information meaning you can hear it if you don't have access to sight or hearing mean you can feel it so throughout the
4:30 am
stories in my book i describe environments in multiple ways i talk about the feelings tables the wather food tastes mounds there's so many we used to experience of the world some people ask why would people travel if they can't see the science and as a blind person that sounds like a silly questions i mean there's so many experiences to how when you are out in the bout i went to dubai several years ago and it was so interesting to feel the different changes in weather to meet people and learn about the different cultures the different foods smells so many experiences. and so many of those experiences are detailed in your book which is excellent it's
4:31 am
a quick read and i'm not the only one who thinks so so there are some members of our community who are already in love with it once it does the video comment her name is monique coleman she's a teacher of visually of the visually impaired and here is what she wanted you to hear of and i just finished reading your book and i found it thoroughly from beginning to end your wit your tenacity your love of learning family and certainly your humor show through all of your experiences i mean t.i. and i highly recommend your book for my students there and their parents as well as from my family and friends who often ask me a lot of questions about why this community and i'd love to point to your book as a resource for learning more and also just because you know for memoir you touched a little bit and are very matter of fact kind of way on your multiple marginalized identities and one where you spoke about being a black death and live woman at a harvard law school event and i'm wondering if you touch a little bit more on that experience because it's not often talked about the violence community and how that nuance perspective it packs the work you do today.
4:32 am
so her question is about your multiple identities being black being blind and deaf and a woman at harvard law school how did that inform your time there so that comment 1st of all think you may need them so the real thing you enjoyed my book in the story is that specific comment comes from the sea where i'm at harvard law school and there's a networking reception for law students to meet with real live lawyers and i had the networking reception i stood out. as a woman who is also black with a dog and a funny computer so i was ultra visible i had the same time i was also
4:33 am
invisible because when people seeing me they think of all the assumptions all the images we have in society blind people the color most common images of the blind beggar and with that comes a low expectations and people assuming she's probably boring not going to talk to her or she probably can't work at my law firm i'm not going to go meet her all those negative assumptions then throughout our history the words down and dumb how often gone together which hurts the deaf community so many of us are extremely intelligent but people assume we are incompetent and they miss out on talent they miss out on opportunities so all in my identity is interest sucked creating. by society creating more barriers with
4:34 am
society's assumption and able ism and reason and sexism so when we address disability rights we also need to advance opportunities for women and people of color no one advances if someone is still left behind there's a story that comes from the book which is when you went to the white house and it was a celebration of the american disabilities act you have the opening speaker for president obama at the time a vice president joe biden i have a picture of hugh here with your bro machine but even behind this amazing celebration of people saying what a great speech the preparations were still a challenge. so when you wanted to go up to the podium to check it out as every speaker loves to do there was a challenge involved in that when you solve that problem tell us how you solve that problem so the
4:35 am
white house was celebrating the e.t.a. the 25th anniversary of the americans with disabilities act so this was a disability centered event all about inclusion and access and i still feel stiff area and my point with the story is even among family even disability events i still find myself advocating partly because i have such a rare disability blindness is rare it's hard to find spaces where i'm automatically included here's what happened at the way house when i arrived i brought a tape is to and communication facilitator named cameron who was highly experienced and done all kinds of events with me and they told us she could not go on stage with when we asked why she is really skilled and i want someone who's experienced
4:36 am
and they said sorry it's protocol they wanted me to go was someone who had not had experience with flying to debates or. there was no time. to change the system so what i really quickly is a train that person and i taught him how to guide the best way to guide for me is to communicate environmental information that we dancer communicates music so through your shoulder and arm so we practiced going on and off the stage and i taught him how to use the keyboard in real display luckily it worked out well but people should trust. organizations and institutions should trust people with disabilities when we request accommodations we are our experts we know
4:37 am
what works for us and we need society to listen. if i may just a sneaky little story off the back of that i'm going to show a picture of president obama at the time and then you and he's typing to you he decides he's not going to speak anymore he's going to type directly to you and then in the background we have to forward vice president joe biden and he wrote a little message to you as well to remember what he wrote to you i want you to tell the world because he's known for his empathy a rather warm approach to meeting people warm approach in. tell the world so when i 1st met him the 1st thing he said as not high not nice to meet you but 1st thing he says is i love you 8 in fact i am not proud last.
4:38 am
so i said i think you but i was thinking did he just declare love what does this mean but. sometimes people when they're encountered with that when they encounter something new they accidently blurt out things that just touch on the answer of what they mean so i try to see the best in the situation and assume that people mean wow and i took it as a compliment and him trying to communicate respect and admiration. so many of these instances and you do tell a couple of them in the book hinge on that on people meaning well but not knowing what to say and it leads to sometimes some awkward circumstances so i want to share a couple of tweets from on twitter who says the way to defuse those situations is humor she writes humor can relax everyone when you make a joke of your limits after which people can then listen better she goes on to say
4:39 am
i have so many questions for hoben blush question one how do you find happiness in life you always sound so happy so call me and compose so when i'm hoping you can answer both of those questions one how do you find happiness but also how do you then use humor to diffuse potentially awkward situations. humor is only to happiness humor dispels any disability related awkwardness people and there are processed. also and finding that humor is a green tool to break the tie and help people feel comfortable it shouldn't be our job to me non-disabled people feel comfortable but it's a tool if you find yourself in that situation to help break the ice and hopefully teach them inclusion teach them to be better advocates how do i find happiness
4:40 am
happiness is a process be honest with yourself what are your struggles what are your challenges and once you accept them and address them you can work towards solutions so happiness is a process of constantly having those conversations with their song. there's a way that you approach your advocacy in the book which is by storytelling you tell a story use it as an illustration you give some stats and you say you do better this is how we can do better i am showing a picture with our audience of you in juneau in alaska added last year and that was the time when you were hoping to get a summer job you were super qualified really smart student and you couldn't get a job and you share the statistic of about 70 percent of blind people never work so this idea of being a person a disability and not being able to work out you working to change that
4:41 am
that's a good question so when i was in college i really wanted a summer job just like lots of other college students and one of my friends told me i know a place where there are lots of summer jobs alaska and he was raped there's a larger tourism industry in juneau alaska and lots of some regards because of the tourism industry employers would see my resume and get excited and invite me to interview is i was valedictorian in high school really good grades in college lots of volunteer experiences and still employers didn't want to hire me able ism assumptions that i was incompetent i would not be able to do the job i applied to all kinds of jobs dishwashing shelving gift shops folding laundry in
4:42 am
hotel these are tactile activities they don't require site but they still assumed i couldn't do it and they wouldn't hire me. that taught me that introduced me to employment discrimination and mean we realized working hard is not enough we also need employers to get rid of able ism stop assuming that people with disabilities are incompetent at bentley that summer i found a one employer who was it clear. she hired need to be a front desk clerk at a small gym in juneau alaska so my responsibilities included managing the cash register the machines in the gym cleaning the changing rooms she didn't care what their used cite or non-visual technique as long as i got the job done lots of people with disabilities have alternative techniques and alternative
4:43 am
techniques are equal in value to mean stream techniques employers need to know that one day a woman came to the front desk of the gym and she said a treadmill isn't working i followed her to the treadmills and i pressed the on button and nothing happened i tried the other buttons on the machine nothing happened so i thought the machine from top to bottom and on the bottom i felt a switch i flicked the switch and the machine where to lay the lady's side as only goodness i didn't see that switch i told her i didn't see it either record a record. of it sometimes that discrimination also extends to the digital space and so i want to share a common from a disability rights lawyer in berkeley. the bay area of california where it is also from have a loser. digital accessibility is
4:44 am
a human right of disabled people around the globe and here in the united states we have laws to protect that right people have been using those laws for more than 20 years to make sure the digital world is available to everyone recently domino's pizza has asked the u.s. supreme court to try to limit how disabled people can use laws to protect their right to be part of the digital world we don't know what's going to happen with that and we won't know probably for another year but we do know that people with disabilities and their lawyers will continue to fight to make sure the digital world is inclusive i'd love to hear from hoben about a lawsuit that she worked on that she talks about in her book that made a digital library with hundreds of thousands of books available to everyone so haven't we have just about a minute left in the show but can you talk about that lawsuit
4:45 am
