SUMMARY

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.Matson, Floyd is the author of 'Blind Justice : Jacobus Ten Broek and the Vision of Equality', published 2005 under ISBN 9781422300107 and ISBN 1422300102.
