We invite you to a virtual screening of the film Signing Black in America (Dir. Danica Cullinan and Neal Hutcheson, Films Media Group, 2020). This is the first-ever documentary about the innovative variety of sign language that was developed by members of the historically segregated African American Deaf Community. An online panel discussion will follow that features deaf and hearing producers and researchers for this film:
Professor Carolyn McCaskill (Gallaudet University), Ciel Lucas, Professor Emerita (Gallaudet University), Professor Joseph Hill (Rochester Institute of Technology), and Professor Robert Bayley (University of California, Davis). Sign and voice interpreters are Mr. Paris McTizic and Ms. Jenese Portee.
