Opening Celebration and A Visual Anthology

More than 9,700 people from around the world attended Deaf Way II, the international conference and festival in July 2002, sponsored by Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the successes of Deaf people everywhere. The new videotapes Deaf Way II: Opening Celebration and Deaf Way II: A Visual Anthology present two unique overviews of the diverse events that occurred during those six momentous days.

Deaf Way II: Opening Celebration – “Believe” videotape

The Deaf Way II’s Opening Celebration commences with international performances and official welcomes by Gallaudet president I. King Jordan and a corps of Deaf leaders. Amazing stage acts follow by Deaf professionals, including exotic Chinese dancers, Cubans dancing salsa, a storyteller from Australia, interpretive dancers from the Czech Republic, and many others. Deaf children and adults close by signing to the song “When You Believe,” confirming their belief in a peaceful and prosperous future for everyone, the hallmark of Deaf Way II.
