Deaf History Month, March 13 - April 15

"Many of you already know about the PBS film documentary "Through Deaf Eyes" showing (today) Wednesday, March 21 at 9:00 ET (check local listing) but there may be others who do not know. So please help spread the word @ your library. As quoted in ROLL COLL, the newspaper of Capitol Hill, March 13, 2007 : Filmmakers say this documentary is the first comprehensive film on deaf history. Karen Kenton, the film's executive producer, said "We wanted to broaden people's concept of what is normal." "There's (not just) one way of being deaf." The film tells a variety of stories and touches some of the most fundamental issues, facing the deaf community, including how technology contributed to social change for deaf people and the arguments on how deaf children should be educated.
