Ghosts are everywhere.

The Deaf community today doesn’t seem to be what it used to be, so a small group of people must decide whether to sell the last Deaf club in America. As its board of trustees reflects on what it means to be Deaf, a few ghosts return to share stories of what it was like when Deaf clubs truly mattered: Mabel Hubbard Bell, the wife of the Deaf community’s nemesis Alexander Graham Bell; Nellie Zabel Willhite, the first Deaf woman to earn a pilot’s license; Olof Hanson, the first Deaf architect in America; and George Veditz, a charismatic activist who defended the Deaf community’s right to sign. Raymond Luczak offers a compelling look into the Deaf community then and now.
