Learning that people had to protest to get fair representation in the 1980’s seems crazy to me. My first thought was, how could any hearing person ever represent the needs and feelings of the deaf community? Though I understand many people grow up in the deaf community and are hearing, that does not award them the right to understand the struggle of the deaf community or what it’s like actually being deaf. I’m glad to know that every Gallaudet president since the protest has been a deaf president. I’m also very glad I watched this movie, as I feel the history of deaf culture is one few hearing people know, but I think everyone should understand more about a community that lives among hearing people every day, and does not receive its deserve
Oral education was seen as superior to ASL, and the only country that disagreed with this movement was the United States (Hunter). Deaf teachers were dismissed as they were not able to give a proper hearing education (Smith, Ken, Ella). In the next forty years, oral education grew by an astounding number at eighty percent, becoming the number one method of teaching deaf people. This method continued for a very long time, one hundred fifty years. ASL was still tolerated and the deaf community still used it, however because it was seen inferior it caused a negative view of Deaf culture and the people (Smith, Ken,

He then was banned from boxing for three years. After the three years had passed he began his career again and was still one of the top boxers at the time. Muhammad Ali was asked to be in the marines, he could not join because his mental abilities were too low. He then was eligible during
The movie Lean On Me related a lot to things we talked about in class this semester. The first situation was when the head of the district came to Joe and tells him he is nothing and tears him down and that he would not be able to fix the troubled high school. By the head guy doing this to Joe it motivated him to take this as a challenge and created a need for achievement. This is talked about in the motivation chapter, chapter 12. I believe this was the best method of motivating Joe since the high school had so many problems and had so much to be done to turn it around and have the majority pass the basic skills test.
On June 15, 1895 Mr. James Smith fell from a ladder while pruning a tree; Mr. Smith injured his hip. After waiting almost one month after his injury, Mr. Smith consulted with Dr. W. W. Grant. Mr. Grant gave Mr. Smith a diagnosis of “no fracture”. “Dr. Grant heard no more about Mr. Smith until April 1896, when the poorly paid law clerk engaged two of the best young lawyers in Colorado to file a $10,000 civil action against Dr. Grant, claiming limb shortening and disability as a result of his failure to diagnose a femoral fracture” (Barnard Health Care.

It is hard for them to keep both voices alive in America because they never get the opportunity to learn Arabic in school, but are rather taught English and Spanish in high school. Rather than these Sudanese kids saying; this “is my only voice” (Speaking in Tongues), we should teach their native language rather than make them take on a big piece of responsibility in life. Having only a couple
I didn’t want my parents to come to school with me like they when I was younger. All the older kids were at the school and I didn’t want to be embarrassed. Though I told my mom all of that, she still came in with me. The students laughed, but Adriana, my friend, didn 't; she understood what it felt like to be humiliated. As weeks go by, Adriana and I became closer.

Though, the Yakima Valley benefit from the medical school tremendously creating untouchable jobs, there was an incident where the school denied a man from attending the medical school because he was deaf. In the article, "Deaf man sues PNWU for pulling His Acceptance" by Ted Skroback explains how the deaf student plans on suing the university. Zach Featherson 's dream is to help deaf medical students. Featherson said, " I am the same person they admitted-I want to begin my education, become a top-notch doctor, and serve the deaf community. There are hundreds of deaf medical professionals all over the country over a hundred deaf doctors, who all made it through their programs and are serving patients without incident."
He did not lose his hearing totally, so he was able to use hearing aids to help him hear, and he never connected with the Deaf Society. Many years later my aunt first child a girl was born deaf, but the family really did not know she was deaf until the baby was two years. Twelve years later, due to family problems, my mom ended up temporary custody. While my cousin was in my care, I had no idea what the Deaf Culture consist of, how many problems, confusion and conflict these individuals go through just because of their deafness. I focus on Black Deaf Americans because they are faced with two obstacles: 1: being Black Americans and the historically oppressions that the majority of them had gone through for generations and still are going through; 2: being Deaf in a hearing world.
