Legally Blind And On Pandemic Lockdown

Manny and Dalesha
Manny and Dalesha

Manny Giménez can see, just not very well. He is legally blind, and so is his partner, Dalesha.

Since legally-blind and interracial couples are rare, Manny and Dalesha began putting their story out to the public in YouTube videos a few years ago. The videos show how the couple navigate life and love with limited eyesight.

The situation is that much trickier to navigate with the novel coronavirus on the loose. Manny visits to talk about how they are coping, and what they are doing while staying safe at their home in Illinois.
