HIST 333 Diversity in the Deaf Community: Segregated Schools and Black ASL

This guide introduces the diverse deaf community, including sign language dialects. This guide discusses the most common groups found in the Deaf community.

Segregated Schools and Black ASL

We had segregated Black Deaf schools, particularly in the South. As a result, Black Deaf developed their sign language dialect, Black ASL. Dr. Joseph Hill, an NTID professor, was involved in this research. The Hidden Treasure of Black ASL YouTube video playlist is linked below (companion to the book).
