about

Imagine having been a professor for over twenty five years and while concluding a lecture to over fifty health and wellness majors and eliciting questions from the class: while motioning to one student who stood up in the back of the room and proceeded to ask a question: I could hear portions of his question Developed and Lecturer for newly developed course: Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) entitled: Ethics, Health Policy, and Finance. Team taught with my lectures focusing on “Health Policy and Nursing.” This is a book about the history and treatment of deaf and hard of hearing people around the world: the American with Disability Act, Alexander Graham Bell's Arguments Against, Oralism versus Sign Language. . This book takes the reader on an eye opening and absorbing epic educational journey. It will feed your hunger and thirst as you enjoy reading new knowledge about people with hearing disorders. The book is thought provoking from beginning to end. The message in today's society is typically, to people who are hard of hearing or deaf, is to “get a Cochlear Implant or a Hearing Aid and move on.” There is nothing written historically about African American Deaf and Hard of Hearing Slaves; Prisoners in Penal Systems who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing; or the Sterilization and Murder of Deaf or Hard of Hearing People during the Third Reich in Germany. There is an urgent need to share with the world the plight then and now about persons who then and now, are deaf or hard of hearing. While I hold a PhD in Higher Education, and a person who is currently experiencing the plights of not being able to hear clearly nor understand what another person is saying, it is frustrating and almost unbearable sometimes, to the point of wanting to commit suicide.
