On the Beat of Truth

A former RIT professor tells her parent's story in the new book On the Beat of Truth: A Hearing Daughter’s Stories of Her Black Deaf Parents. Maxine Childress Brown is the oldest daughter of deaf, working-class African-American parents. She marveled at how they raised a well-respected, middle-class family in the midst of segregation with the added challenge of being deaf. The 310 book is available through Gallaudet University Press here or Amazon here.
