Buffalo's Museum of disABILITY

The 31st annual Developmental Disabilities Awareness Day Conference was held in downtown Niagara Falls Thursday. Its morning keynote speaker is a woman who, despite her physical condition, became a trained violinist who would go on to win the 2016 NPR Music Tiny Desk competition. She now travels to spread a message that being "disabled" is just another form of diversity for which people should be proud.

A couple of suitcases that once belonged to a patient treated at the former Willard Psychiatric Center in the Finger Lakes region decades ago is now on display locally. WBFO's senior reporter Eileen Buckley takes us to Buffalo's Museum of disABILITY for a look inside suitcases.
