Marking DPN

It has nearly been a quarter of a century since Gallaudet was rocked by the Deaf President Now protests. The school will mark the 25th anniversary of the grassroots effort that put Deaf Culture in the headlines and brought Gally its first deaf president, I. King Jordan. He has been followed by two other deaf presidents. The protest began on March 6, 1988. For more on the lectures, panels, and other events planned every the next few weeks to commemorate this movement, click here.
