The American Tragedy of COVID-19: Social and Political Crises of 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States is a classic tragedy of destruction following errors in judgment.  Naomi Zack presents social and political aspects of this disaster as it unfolded in public health through federal and local government structures, society, culture, and the economy.

Federalism combined with politics in facing and denying the SARS-CoV2 pandemic has revealed both weaknesses and strengths.

Anthony Ray Hinton - Special Zoom Event

Join us as we welcome:

ANTHONY RAY HINTON

to Lehman College, for a special Zoom event.


Anthony Ray Hinton survived for 30 years on Alabama’s death row. His story is a decades-long journey to exoneration and freedom.

In 1985, Mr. Hinton was convicted of the unsolved murders of two fast-food restaurant managers based on the testimony of ballistics experts for the State who claimed that the crime bullets came from a dusty revolver found in Mr. Hinton’s mother’s closet. Without the benefit of a competent expert to challenge the State’s theory (Mr. Hinton’s lawyer hired a ballistics expert who was blind in one eye), an all-white jury convicted Mr. Hinton and he was sentenced to death.

After years of petitioning to have the revolver re-analyzed, three independent experts concluded that the bullets could not have been fired from his mother’s revolver. With the assistance of the Equal Justice Initiative, led by attorney Bryan Stevenson, Mr. Hinton was freed in 2015.

Since his release, Mr. Hinton has traveled the world sharing his story and discussing the changes that need to be made to prevent similar injustices from happening to other people. In 2018, Mr. Hinton published
The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row, which was selected for Oprah’s Book Club and is a New York Times bestseller. In 2019, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from St. Bonaventure University.

Faculty and Staff are invited to bring students!

Accessibility Advocate Chancey Fleet to Discuss "The Joys and Frictions of Blindness in the Digital Commons"
Chancey Fleet, a Brooklyn-based accessibility advocate, will deliver a talk on  the liberations and complications of using tech while blind. Her talk, titled "De-visualizing Technologies: The Joys and Friction of Blindness in the Digital Commons," is presented by the Lehman College Disability Studies Program. 

Friday, May 3, 11 am-12:30 pm
Gillet Hall, Rm. 226


She will explore exciting problems in nonvisual workflows: How do design decisions taken by sighted developers perpetuate the scarcity of tech for tangible transmission of spatial information? What happens in skill- building, self-study and tech education when the general public is unfamiliar with the very existence of the features critical to nonvisual success? When major platforms track accessibility-related interests for the convenience of advertisers, or hide the field for describing social media images behind an opt-in setting, how can we cut through the mystique around accessibility tech to bring these dark patterns into the light?

Fleet coordinates technology education programs at the New York Public Library's Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library. Her current library-based projects include group workshops highlighting mobile technologies for independent living and information literacy; programs introducing youth and adults to non-visual techniques for coding and making with Arduino; and the Dimensions project (a recipient of NYPL’s 2016 Innovation Grant for staff projects), which equips community members with the training and tools they need to create accessible tactile maps, diagrams, graphics and objects. Chancey was recognized as a 2017 Library Journal Mover and Shaker. In her Data & Society fellowship work in 2018-2019, Chancey hopes to deepen public understanding and spark widespread curiosity about how cloud-connected accessibility tools enhance or undermine digital equity, autonomy, security, and privacy.
