The new National Federation of the Blind sign.

In late September a new sign took its place on the skyline of South Baltimore. Measuring 39.5 feet in length and 12 feet in height, this illuminated giant computer screen announces the presence of the National Federation of the Blind. Drivers on I-95 can read our name alternating with other messages of our choice along with the time and temperature. In recent weeks the sign has announced that October was Meet the Blind Month, and it has welcomed groups to the National Center. The display pictured here depicts Whozit in full color striding across the letters “NFB” in black on a white field on the left side and on the right the words “National Federation of the Blind” in white on a black background with the time and temperature underneath. When this photo was taken, a beautiful blue sky was visible behind the sign with the American flag flying above, symbolizing the opportunity in this great land and the encouragement she gives to her people to unite in making the world a better place.
