When I was in Saint Augustine, FL attending Flagler College and going to Anastasia Baptist Church, I noticed that there was a large portion of the population who knew how to sign. I remember one study session in particular in which I saw three guys at Denny’s rocking out a pretty intense discussion. I wish I was in on it. It looked awesome. The reason that there were so many signers, is because in Saint Augustine, there is the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind (where Ray Charles actually got kicked out from for bad behavior). Here is their production of “The Wizard of Oz” – and it is truly amazing. Its about a half hour, so get some popcorn and enjoy:
Here is a link to the school: (link) for further information if your interested.
