In July 2002, more than 9,700 Deaf people from around the world met in Washington, D.C., to share their arts, research, and languages at Deaf Way II, a joyous festival of diverse Deaf cultures. Deaf Way II: An International Celebration offers 250 full-color photographs with captions and introductory essays to capture again the excitement of this historical event. Those who attended the gathering will relive their rich experiences visually, while those who view it for the first time through this book will feel as though they had lived its splendor in person.

The Deaf Way II photographs, taken during the course of the six-day event, create a matchless pictorial record that travels back and forth from the formal grandeur of the opening celebration to fascinating looks behind the scenes at the arts festival and the scholarly conference program. The warm depictions of the youth program and many attendees complement the compelling portrayals of the people and technology that made Deaf Way II accessible to all. Through this magnificent cross-section of photographs, Deaf Way II reveals a wonderful international society of Deaf people that will engage all who see it.

Harvey Goodstein was a professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Gallaudet University and chair of Deaf Way II.

Laura Brown was a program assistant for Deaf Way II. She is now the executive director of DOVE: Advocacy Services for Abused Deaf Women & Children in Denver, CO.

"An amazingly vivid portrayal of people enjoying and exchanging highlights of life, experience, and art, Deaf Way II is truly breathtaking, from its glamorous images of the ‘Thousand Hand Bodhisattva’ dance as portrayed by the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe to behind-the-scenes glimpses from the tireless individuals who worked so hard to make the gathering such a grand success."
