PBS Documentary 'Through Deaf Eyes'

THROUGH DEAF EYES is a documentary that explores 200 years of Deaf life in America.

Similar to my interests of how deaf characters have been treated and portrayed throughout literature, this documentary shows how deaf people have been portrayed in society.

Douglas Baynton, Jack R. Gannon, and Jean Lindquist Bergey, Through Deaf Eyes: A Photographic History of an American Community (April 2007)
This book tells the story of Deaf America and includes such topics as education, employment, and family life of Deaf people. The book is the companion to the PBS 2-hr documentary that will air this month. PBS will have a comprehensive website which will accompany the film.
