The resources below are a collection of websites, videos, books, readings, and other learning materials we found helpful over time.

Sports Silent Dreams

Since childhood it was this Deaf basketball player's "Silent Dream" to play with hearing players on a professional basketball team. In 2004 Osei Morris was the first Deaf African American to play in the American Basketball Association (ABA) with the "LA-Stars." Osei narrates his once in a lifetime experience. This mini-doc was shot by a deaf female filmmaker and edited by a student editor; it is voiced and captioned.
