# Hello ACB history buffs: We are now in Chapter 8 of People of Vision: A History of the American Council of the Blind, by James J. Megivern and Marjorie L. Megivern, copyright 2003 by the American Council of the Blind. This chapter will take about 3.5 hours to read. It covers 1968 through 1981, so we know many of the people who are mentioned in these pages. If you are one of the people mentioned, please plan to attend and talk with us about how it was. Tell us your story in less than five minutes so everyone may speak. Please read and be prepared to join in the discussion. Events happen rapidly in both ACB and NFB. See which chapters were dropped from NFB and which affiliated with ACB. Who were some of the people joining the ACB? In chapter 8 we learn about the deaths of Jacobus tenBroek, Helen Keller, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, all great thinkers, leaders, and diverse representatives of humanity.
