By: Mary Pat Luetke-Stahlman

Jules Katherine Dameron, the filmmaker that has been given credit of “coining #deaftalent” through many venues including Convo (who had later taken the video down), has finally responded to the uproar on Social Media. The controversy had recently been discussed in a letter addressed to NAD by the POC and Black Deaf community authored by Rossana Reis and Maisha Franklin Safford.

Upon reviewing the vlog by Dameron, The Deaf Report contacted her for any further comments and she reemphasized, “This is my truth.” (Dameron)
