In Live and Living Color

Deaf Way II Is Captured on Film

Experience Deaf Way II, the international conference sponsored by Gallaudet University that took place in July 2002, in Washington, D.C. Two new videotapes and a new DVD present a spectacular overview of the diverse events that occurred during those six momentous days. The first videotape Deaf Way II: Opening Celebration - “Believe” begins the festivities with greetings from I. King Jordan, President, Gallaudet University. Dazzling stage acts performed by Deaf professionals follow, including Chinese dancers, Cubans dancing salsa, a storyteller from Australia, and many others. The song “When You Believe,” signed by deaf children and adults, brings the event to an inspiring close.

Part two, the Deaf Way II: A Visual Anthology videotape, takes viewers on a brief tour of the festival. Along the way, the magnificent art exhibited at Gallaudet University, the Millennium Arts Center, and the Kennedy Center is showcased. Other tour events include wondrous dance, comedy, children’s activities and insights from interviews with Deaf artists and conference attendees.

The Women’s Review of Books, published by Wellesley College, had this to say about Sweet Bells Jangled: Laura Redden Searing, A Deaf Poet Restored: “Searing (1839 - 1903), who became deaf as a result of illness at age 13, wrote journalism and poetry under the pen name of Howard Glyndon. A sympathetic biography and brief analysis of Searing’s writing introduce this collection of her poems.” Edited by Judy Yaeger Jones and Jane E. Vallier, Sweet Bells Jangled features more than 70 poems by Civil War poet Laura Redden Searing. At first writing under the pseudonym Howard Glyndon, this young deaf poet exploded onto the public scene with her patriotic poems. But her poetry was more than that, exploring every aspect of life during her time. Read an excerpt from this “epic poem” and order Sweet Bells Jangled, the fourth volume in the Gallaudet Classics in Deaf Studies series.
