"Ben is an adventurous person, and he decided last minute to go to a museum, only to realize there was absolutely NO accessibility for Deaf people whatsoever.

He saw all these people feeling emotions he was being denied access to."

Deaf And Dumb Wedding (1940)
Beverley, Yorkshire. GV Ext of Beverley Minster church. VS of the bridge and groom and all the guests outside the church. Everyone at the wedding is both deaf and dumb and they all converse in sign language. Good CUs of people using the hand sign language of the deaf.
The Rocky Mountain Deaf School community members participated in signing (ASL) the song, "Happy" by Pharrell Williams.
