From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter Wisconsin Bookwatch
Edited by historians Brian H. Greenwald and John Vickrey Van Cleve, A Fair Chance in the Race of Life: The Role of Gallaudet University in Deaf History is an anthology of essays by learned authors scrutinizing the 150+ year history of Gallaudet University, a singularly prominent institution of deaf culture and learning. Individual essays include “The Women of Kendall Green: Coeducation at Gallaudet 1860-1910”, “The Struggle to Educate Black Deaf Schoolchildren in Washington, D.C.”, “A Fair Chance in the Race of Life: Thoughts on the 150th Anniversary of the Founding of the Columbia Institution”, and many more. A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate this amazing look at Gallaudet’s contributions to history, as well as the turbulence of cultural and equality issues that affected him as surely as the rest of the nation. Especially recommended reading for anyone intrigued by the history and evolution of deaf culture.
Brian H. Greenwald is a professor in the Department of History, Philosophy, Religion, and Sociology at Gallaudet University.
John Vickrey Van Cleve is Professor Emeritus of History at Gallaudet University.
