Join the Language Ideologies and Linguistic Discrimination series lecture on the study of Black ASL. Even with the growth of content materials on Black ASL, the public’s demands for more information outpaces the production of Black ASL studies due to the limitation of academic resources. The limitation is related to the intersectionality of racism and audism, the systems of oppression based on race and communication ability, which influence the socio-linguistic and -historical factors in the development and maintenance of Black ASL and the academic pipeline of Black Deaf scholars in social science.
