Racial Attitudes in Deaf Culture, Language, & Community
Abstract: In the presentation, we will explore the various types of racial attitudes that were affected the Deaf culture, language, and community by deaf people. In addition to this, we will explore the intersectionality concepts in Deaf culture, language, and community. We will examine the types of racial attitudes and unpack them to reduce any racial attitudes in our Deaf communities across the United States of America.
