dec 30, 1964 - Said of a Deaf man wo attended
CSD during this time,
“Every day the teachers told me
to stop using my hands in class,
they told me to speak and I tried.
We had to hold our hands behind
our backs but I used to misbehave.
When the teacher turned her back
I used signs with the other children
but had to do it quickly before the
teacher looked around. In the yard,
during break time we used signs.”
