This video is an excerpt from John Wilson’s DVD sent to his daughter. His daughter doesn’t remember much signs as she used to before, because the government separated them and prisoned John. John used his voice while signing so his daughter could understand him.
Video description: the narrator is John Wilson, a Black Deaf man sitting on a desk in what appears to be a classroom. There is a dry erase wall behind John.
John signs, “How are you today? This is my second time for a DVD time. When I first made a DVD video, I sent it to home and I know you liked the video. Now this is my second time. *takes a deep breath* So I just got here from work.”
The video plays a transition in which clips flip a page as if it were a book. John continues, “It pays good. Kind of. I’m saving money so I can buy ceramics for you. I’m going to sign the letter C for ceramics. I’m going to make something. I’m getting 9 ceramics for you and 2 ceramics for my grandson. Two ceramics.”
The video plays a transition in which clips flip a page as if it were a book. John continues, “Make sure to call the parole commission. See and if I got the documents and if I can be released. Keep calling until you get an answer. I want to go home so bad. Really bad. Please.”
