    Deaf Herstory and History: Resources for Deaf History Month

    Deaf and hard of hearing people contributed in meaningful ways throughout history—as artists, writers, scientists, community leaders, and in many other roles. But Deaf women who were actively involved in both the Deaf and hearing political and social worlds have remained highly invisible. Read more about these women in the original DCMP article written by noted Deaf historian Dr. Harry Lang.

    The DCMP has comprehensive deaf-history resources to help you celebrate Deaf History Month (March 13-April 15), both those that are available to registered DCMP members and those that are available to everyone on our YouTube channel.

    Value of DCMP Audio Description: A Producer’s Perspective

    Hilari Scarl, director and producer of one of the new DCMP March videos entitled See What I'm Saying: The Deaf Entertainers Documentary, relates her feelings about the quality of the audio description DCMP added to her production and how it enhanced her product. She writes: “To say I was moved by the eloquence of both the descriptive choices and the talent of the VO actor is an understatement. As an artist, I was deeply touched by the amount of work, care, and skill that went into audio describing my film. I was doubly moved that blind people, including the two blind people who are in the documentary, can now access my film. As a filmmaker, our deepest desire is to have people–all people–have the opportunity to experience our work, and it broke my heart every time I learned that someone in one of my audiences experienced the film through the existing audio or through a companion whispering to them throughout the film.” Read all her comments here.
