The history often shows that intersections between deaf and Deaf people are many and that oppression and discrimination are common experiences

"[R]ecounts the forgotten history of racial cleansing in America, when thousands of African Americans were driven from their homes and communities by violent racist mobs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries ...
