Carolyn McCaskill, PhD, Professor Gallaudet University Department of Deaf Studies, Director of the Center for Black Deaf Studies

Keeping it Real: Addressing Race, Gender and Disability Issues within the Deaf Community

Synopsis: It is never easy to discuss racism or any form of oppression issues. However, they exist within our community as well as the Deaf community, and we must acknowledge it.  This presentation will discuss racism, gender, and disability issues within the Deaf community.

Dr. McCaskill will share her personal experience to illustrate the problems faced within the Deaf community and highlights the intersectionality within the Deaf community – how race, class, gender, and disability connect and lead to discrimination.
