A new name sign for Obama?

03.19.09 | Comment?

In an open letter to Barack Obama, Gallaudet University grad student Kirsi Grigg tells the new president what his name sign is.

[Note: Gallaudet is the world’s first and till today the only university the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Instead of a blog, the president of the university keeps a vlog. Also interesting is Deaf President Now, a student protest in 1988 to remove the university’s hearing president and to install a deaf president instead. This was a pivotal moment in the Deaf pride movement.]
