This SD card is an excellent source for reading lots of NFB speeches, books etc. I would strongly encourage everyone to buy one or more of these. If you have an older version it’s definitely worth getting the new one.

> 10. A Newsletter article has been added, from 1940, reporting on the Organizing meeting of the National Federation of the Blind in Wilksbarre, Pennsylvania, on November 16, 1940. It was published by the Pennsylvania Federation in the Winter 1940 edition of their newsletter, entitled, "We Are The Blind". 
> Of course this 2015 NFB Library Card also contains all of the items in our previous versions, including, but not limited to:
> 1. All available banquet speeches by Jacobus tenBroek, Kenneth Jernigan and Marc Maurer, going back to 1952. These speeches are in live mp3 audio, as well as in text, to allow for doing word searches, and cutting and pasting into other documents.

These books include "Walking Alone and Marching Together", Kenneth Jernigan, The Master, The Mission, The Movement, narrated by Marc Maurer; and "Freedom for the Blind, The Secret is Empowerment" by James H. Omvig.
