Deaf History That: Deaf Community Gatherings

2 minutes

I was just working a little while ago, and I am resting now. I am looking forward to this Saturday, as I have plans in town, where I will join a gathering with other deaf people. These deaf gatherings always involve a meal and the usual festivities. Afterwards, there always will be performances, lectures, sermons, storytelling, and the sharing of news from other areas. This became a custom of ours, where we learn of what has or is happening among various deaf communities. Our community always has the same customs, which includes performances, lectures, storytelling, and even poetry in sign language. I always enjoy such wonderful events, and I look forward to the next one. Well, my break is over, and I better get back to work! Accessibility provided by the U.S. Department of Education.
