Ben Bahan and Rhonda Jennings Share Their ASL Stories

Ben Bahan, professor of American Sign Language and deaf studies at Gallaudet University, and his student Rhonda Jennings shared humorous tales in ASL as part of the One World, Many Voices program. Such stories often deal with the barriers faced by the deaf community and the tools used to overcome them.
