Treasures of Ours

Natasha “Courage” Bacchus

Ethnicity: Tkaronto-Guyanese
Label: Black Deaf Female Queer
Treasure: My role models

“This photo shows how fortunate I am to have Black Deaf Role models, Rohan Smith and Levia Moncriffe-Bellai in my life. They believed in my success athleticism and encouraged me to go to the 1993 Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgaria at age of 15.

I value this moment (in this picture) because as Black Caribbean Deaf athletes, others can look up and relate and see themselves in me.

In this stolen land, we’ve been putting underrepresented Black Deaf community divided from Black hearing community caused by white supremacy system personally.”

How is it passed along/ shared/ sourced?
It still passed along to impact my recognization rise.
