This is USH an evening of conversation

Steven McCoy, the first recognized black deafblind journalist in the US, and Rebecca Alexander, an award-winning author, and psychotherapist who is almost completely blind and deaf took the stage with moderator and esteemed media personality, Danita Chantel to talk about the unique experience of living with Usher syndrome, a rare genetic disease that causes progressive loss of both vision and hearing. Rebecca and Steven addressed a range of topics including how to cultivate a deeply meaningful life in the face of adversity, using vulnerability as a tool for empowerment, finding comfort with discomfort, grief and loss, intersectionality, self-advocacy, and beyond.
