Film screening and Q&A with executive producer
Signing Black in America is the first documentary about Black ASL: the unique dialect
of American Sign Language (ASL) that developed within historically segregated African
American Deaf communities. Largely unknown to outsiders, Black ASL has become a symbol
of solidarity and a vital part of identity within the Black Deaf community. The film
runtime is 30 minutes and will be followed by a Q+A with Walt Wolfram, executive producer
and Distinguished Professor, North Carolina State University, where he also directs
the North Carolina Language and Life project.
