/ 2006 Protest: From the Black Deaf Side

Mr. Dunn will moderate a panel discussion of Black Deaf individuals who experienced the 2006 protest from different sides/positions/perspectives.   This panel will discuss responses within the black deaf community to the screening out of Dr. Anderson’s candidacy. This panel will explore the implications of the Selection Committee and the Board of Trustees decision and the aftermath including the role of digital media in engaging a cross section of the black deaf community in discourses related to issues such as racism, nepotism/favoritism and privilege within the deaf community within and beyond Gallaudet University.
