England: Deaf Muslim Punk Rocker

Sabina England is a Deaf Muslim punk rocker turned filmmaker, who discusses her punk origins and reflects on Deaf culture here. She says, "I’m 28 years old and I’m just starting to meet all these successful, great, intelligent Deaf artists and writers, who are into ASL poetry and sign language theatre. I never learned about that as a teenager and I wish I had. I would love to be part of that." Here's a video performance.
