POV: He's My Brother

Mon, 01/09/2023 - 9:00pm - 10:00pm

Peter and Christine

Peter was born deaf and blind, so his family has always seen and heard the world for him.

Christine's brother Peter experiences his world through touch, smell, and taste. Now 30 years old, Peter's family is having trouble finding the proper care for his multiple disabilities. He's My Brother explores how the family works to assure him a dignified life once the parents are gone – and Christine's own uncertainties about one day becoming his primary caregiver.. POV: He's My Brother airs Monday, January 9, 2023 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV. 

This presentation is part of Dialogue on Disability, a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies - in conjunction with the Herman and Margaret Schwartz Community Series. The weeklong initiative, which runs January 9-15, is designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with physical, developmental, and intellectual disabilities. Dialogue on Disability is supported by the Fred L. Emerson Foundation with additional support from The Golisano Foundation.
