Deafinitely Dope: A Unique Story of ASL and Deaf Culture
Have you ever wanted to learn more about American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture? Join us for an exciting night with Matt Maxey, CEO of Deafinitely Dope and concert interpreter for Grammy winner, Chance the Rapper. Matt will tell us about his life story, including growing up Deaf. ASL has been rooted in Centre’s history since John A. Jacobs, a Centre graduate, founded the Kentucky School for the Deaf in 1823. Since then, Deaf culture has become commonplace in Danville. We hope you join us for an informative and interesting presentation about Matt Maxey’s unique story.
