The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) is pleased to announce the second episode of its Inform and Connect series focusing on the journey of Dave Steele, the Blind Poet, and how he took his fight with RP to create an expressive art form of captivating poetry.
“Originally scheduled to emcee our Helen Keller Achievement Awards, I got to meet Dave personally when he visited our AFB office in Arlington,” said Melody Goodspeed, AFB Major Gifts Specialist. “I was immediately moved to a place of peace and wonder as he recited his poetry from his heart. This will be a moving and engaging experience – participants should come ready to be moved by Dave’s art. He is a calming and engaging presence, teaching us all that we can find hope and wonder, even through the darkest of times.”
Inform and Connect was created with the idea of fostering camaraderie within the blindness community through informal storytelling and learning about relevant, interesting topics. This week’s guest will feature the Blind Poet Dave Steele as he walks us through his personal story, his journey to healing, and how he reaches others through his poetry reading and advocacy.
