Presentation on the integration of black deaf students - POSTPONED

Date and Time:
13 February 2014
12:30 PM - 1:50 PM
Elstad Auditorium

This presentation is canceled and a new date will be announced soon.

Dr. Glenn Anderson will present, "Still I Rise! The Enduring Legacy of Black Deaf Arkansans Before and After Integration."

After the Supreme Court's Brown vs. the Topeka Board of Education landmark decision in 1954 to end segregation, black students in Arkansas were relocated to white campuses. Consequently, much of the history of the black students was lost. Dr. Glenn Anderson's presentation is a compilation of the memories and stories shared by black deaf Arkansans ranging from those who attended school during the segregation era, to the first group of black students to integrate the Arkansas School for the Deaf in 1965, and afterwards.

A reception will follow the presentation.
