“The story of a revolution, a dignified, self-respecting revolution.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“This book is the amazing story of that week told by a man with a unique vantage point. I am certain this book will become a cherished diary of that historic week in March--the week the world heard from Gallaudet.”

—From the Foreword by Congressman David E. Bonior

In 200 full-color and black-and-white photographs, The Week the World Heard Gallaudet depicts, day by day, the Deaf President Now! Revolution at Gallaudet University as it unfolded March 6 - 13, 1988. Author Jack Gannon interviewed such main characters as Greg Hlibok, president of the student government, and Elizabeth Zinser, the University’s president for two days. I. King Jordan, Gallaudet’s first deaf president, contributed the epilogue.

Jack R. Gannon is former Special Assistant for Advocacy to the president of Gallaudet University.
