The Legacy of Deaf President Now in South Africa
Druchen, Bruno
Sign Language Studies, v15 n1 p74-86 Fall 2014
The impact of DPN on South Africa is remarkable particularly the profound transformations in the country since 1988. When citizens find that their civil rights are not being granted, they may form movements to claim equal protection for all citizens. They may also call for new laws to stop current discrimination. In 1988 it was the "Deaf President Now" movement that shook the world and it became a catalyst for other movements across the world including South Africa.
