Media and Technology. Section IV.
Fiorito, Eunice; And Others
This document contains three papers about media and technology presented at a national conference on the nonwhite disabled. In "Overcoming" (E. Fiorito and J. Doherty), a comparison is made between treatment of blacks and the disabled as inferior citizens. Ways in which both populations can work more closely with the media to promote awareness and provide information are discussed. In "Images and Identity--In Marketing Adults with Disabilities in the Media," J. W. Fowler presents an overview of marketing strategies and recommendations instituted by the President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped to ameliorate negative images and stereotypes of the disabled. "New Assistive Technologies and the Nonwhite Disabled" (R. W. Nicholls) discusses the need for a partnership among disabled individuals, service providers, and manufacturers which could promote awareness, cost-effectiveness, availabilty, and equal access to assistive technologies for the disabled.
