In this webinar: 

What can the past tell us about contemporary employment policy for veterans with disabilities? For the past decade, Dr. Larry Logue and BBI Chairman, Dr. Peter Blanck have conducted research on Union army veterans' experience with disabilities and federal government benefits. Their new book “Race, Ethnicity, and Disability: Veterans and Benefits in Post-Civil War America,” a volume in the Cambridge University Press Disability Law and Policy series investigates veterans' longevity and African Americans' treatment in the pension system. Join this webinar to discover the historical and contemporary views of the employment of veterans with disabilities.
