The Washington Post publishes an article about the sign language African-Americans use. Gallaudet University professors Dr. Carolyn McCaskill and Dr. Ceil Lucas and 2011 Collegiate Black Deaf Student Leadership Institute (CBDSLI) participants Mercedes Hunter and Teraca Florence are featured in this article. The article also notes last year's publication of “The Hidden Treasure of Black ASL: Its History and Structure”, which NBDA was honored to be part of this groundbreaking book and its companion DVD.
