Where were you on the day that Martin Luther King gave his famous "I have a Dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, people in the media are sharing their testimonies of their experiences during the "March to Washington," a half century ago this week. We are are aware of his contribution to the American civil rights movement, but still yet not heard from any single Deaf individual who was there at that historic event. Any Gallaudet students participants, any Deaf blacks from the South involved, was there an interpreter available on site. What was the attitudes then of Deaf Americans in those days, were they ignorant to the facts that the world is changing before their eyes.
