Hey all this guy is really great! I thought this performance is also really cool because he incorporates sign language into it. Enjoy!

    Good find, Hannah! I agree with Erica, I think incorporating sign language adds an interesting aspect to spoken word. It’s also a unique way of using the body to further enhance the performance, and he does so with passion.

    That was so great! I know a little ASL, I did an independent study in high school, and I have always been drawn to the movement and expression of ASL signers. I think it adds so much to spoken word, which is already using language as a platform for self expression.
