Jordan Snubbed

The folks at Gallyprotest noted in a press release they were not inviting I King Jordan to their banquet Monday on the Gallaudet campus even though the gathering is in celebration of the events that swept him into office. Twenty years ago the Deaf President Now protest led to his selection as the first deaf president for the school. But many in the Deaf community parted ways with Jordan over his successor and policies near the end of his tenure.
