USAmagicians.com takes great pride in the fact that today, January 4th, was recently established by the United Nations as being World Braille Day, which is day of recognizing those who are blind and and the difference they are making in society which includes blind magicians!
A Very Special Magician
One such conjuring contributor to society is Adam Jaslikowski known by his stage name which is “Justin Sight” and who is legally blind. Sight is a street magician in New York City and delights New Yorkers with his prestidigitation. Justin has likely pulled back a bit from his in-person performing because of the Pandemic, but is the subject of a new documentary made by filmmaker Sebastian Mlynarski called “Magic Man.”
The Origins of a Name
Today, January 4th, is now called World Braille Day internationally because it is Louis Braille’s birthday, the inventor who in the 1800s created braille. Braille is the system by which those who are blind are able to read!
