“Never a word of narration, never a voice telling us what we are seeing, guiding our reactions, advising us how to feel. We are on our own... The reward is a new awareness not only of the blind and deaf, but of those who work with them.”

“There’s no doubt that a society is reflected in its institutions. The Alabama Institute catches us at our most caring and compassionate moments.”
– John J. O’Connor, The New York Times
