The Best Deaf History Book Recommendations

Learn more about Deaf history than you ever wanted to know!

If you are learning ASL and planning to be a part of the Deaf community, you have to know about Deaf history. You can read our history of sign language page, but that doesn’t hold a candle to everything you can learn from these books. We highly recommend all of the books in this list. They will give you a greater insight into the history that the Deaf had to endure than you have ever known.


We can’t emphasize enough how important these books are. I learned so much from reading them, and I can only pray that you will learn about this amazing history as well.
