This course examines the presence of Black Deaf people in Deaf history, beginning with the first student to receive a formal education at a school for the deaf until the establishment of the Texas Blind, Deaf, Orphanage or TBDO as it was called. It will begin with a theoretical survey of the condition of being a black person during slavery, Reconstruction era and colonialism, and conclude with a discussion of the Reconstruction era decision to provide education for Black Deaf students in the Southern states.
