Video Description

A video featuring Janie Golightly, an older white woman, standing in front of a historical exhibit displaying images of Deaf schools and Deaf printers.


The Deaf Printers Pages is a collaborative project between the Drs. John S. & Betty J. Schuchman Deaf Documentary Center at Gallaudet University and a group of Deaf retirees from The Washington Post. This online exhibit preserves the last of many generations of Deaf people who learned printing in school and worked at local and national newspapers around the country. From the 1970s-2000 more than 125 Deaf people found employment at The Washington Post. The composing room and advertising departments of the newspaper became spaces where Deaf and hearing printers interacted daily, creating a uniquely accessible work environment. The Deaf Printers Project aims to record and preserve the stories and signs of this disappearing community.
