Diversity Awareness with Guest Artist Rafael Lopez & Guest Author Sonia Sotomayor

June 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

What does disability mean? Do you or does someone you know have a specific disability? Guest Artist Rafael Lopez will lead elementary school students in a virtual program that discusses the history of disability representation on US postage stamps. From Albert Einstein to Lou Gehrig, children will learn more about the many individuals with disabilities that have been honored on a commemorative stamp, as well as the ways—both positive and negative—disabilities have been portrayed by the United States Postal Service. Participants will get to discuss with Rafael and the author of Just Ask! Be Different, Be Brave, Be You, Sonia Sotomayor, what their personal experiences with disabilities have been. Recommended for ages 6-9, but all elementary-aged children are welcome!

The Guest Artist Program at the National Postal Museum is generously supported by the TurningPoint Foundation.

Registration is required and limited for this free, virtual program. A Zoom link will be sent to participants 24 hours before the program. Closed captioning provided.
