DTV-Freedom-Day

Freedom Day 2017

Freedom Day 2017

In commemoration of Freedom Day, Candice Morgan and Troy Panaino share their different experiences of growing up deaf during apartheid. With little exposure to anything else, they both grew up thinking what they saw was normal. And their deafness served as an additional barrier. Troy saw images of protests and violence on TV, but the news did not include Sign Language interpreters then, so the images did not make any sense.

It was only as they both got older that they began to understand that things were not as they should be, with everything changing on that momentous day in 1994 – 27 April, the very first post-apartheid elections in South Africa.
