This month, Florida State College at Jacksonville is holding events to help hearing people understand deaf culture.

Seminars called “Deafology 101” kicked off the month.

Their purpose was to expose people of all ages to the deaf community, teach appropriate terminology, and allow hearing people to interact with deaf people by turning off their voices and learning some basic sign language skills.
