Deaf Community Voices in the Heart of D.C. - Signing a Culture Oral History Project
This oral history project documents the Deaf Community in Washington, D.C. during a time when educational, employment, and recreational activities were limited due to communication barriers between Deaf and hearing people and misconceptions about what Deaf people can accomplish. The project explores how the Deaf Community created organizations to fill the social, recreational, educational, and spiritual needs which were inaccessible due to communication barriers. The project was conducted by Janice Rosen, Librarian in the Center for Accessibility at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library branch of the DC Public Library.
