A Sign from God: Q&A with Karen Graham, BA’87

Jul. 10, 2017, 2:54 PM

Guided by little more than a desire to learn sign language and perhaps some divine intervention, longtime Atlanta television news personality Karen Graham, BA’87, has launched a digital news network for the deaf community. With plans to broadcast two online newscasts a day, the CNN-affiliated Sign1News will be the first of its kind, the only network to cater exclusively to deaf people in American Sign Language. No voiceovers. No music. No closed-captioning.

Here, Graham chats with Vanderbilt Magazine about her work in the deaf community and the leap of faith she took in developing Sign1News.
