Future in Sight is developing a video series about the White Cane, its use, meaning and impact on the community. For people who are blind and visually impaired, the white cane is more than an instrument, it is a tool that symbolizes independence. In this video, O & M Specialist Michael Mulligan tells the story about the origin of the white cane and important turning points in history that have led up to today.
