      Black Signs - A Cultural and� Lexical Variation



      Summary/Abstract of Workshop - This presentation will discuss the historical, cultural and lexical variation in Black signing – that is, “Do Black signers share the same signs for a concept or do they have different signs for the same concept as White signers?”� Regional differences have been looked at by Woodward (1976) and Woodward (in progress.)� In addition to Woodward’s study, the historical and cultural basis for differences in signs will be discussed.� Historically, the roots of Black sign language developed because of societal attitudes and educational inequalities, especially in Southern Black schools where dual educational systems existed for several years.� Culturally, the issue is whether a Black/Deaf community actually exists that is distinct from both the Black community and the Deaf community.� Within this double immersion, does one identify more with the Black, Deaf or Black/Deaf community?� Finally, a comparison and demonstration of signs will be presented according to region, age, and economic backgrounds of signers.� The issue of “code-switching” within this particular group will also be explored.� Take-home tips and tools will also be available after the presentation.�
