TCB's White Cane Awareness Walk Made Channel Six!

KOTV Channel 6 in Tulsa aired the Tulsa Council of the Blind White Cane Awareness Walk last night on the 10 pm news. News reporter Lacie Lowry followed us down Peoria while twenty-two blind and sighted individuals followed Representative Jeannie McDaniel and Senator Brian Crain as they took turns walking blindfolded and using a white cane. I believe they got the picture about some of the issues facing blind and visually impaired persons who travel the streets of Tulsa. They also got to experience the kinds of information received when using a cane.
