In September 2019, Milwaukee Public Library (MPL) hosted its first Deaf StorySlam, a storytelling event intended to highlight Deaf voices of color and their lived experiences and bring together the city’s Deaf and hearing communities. Out of 112 applications, the project was selected to receive the inaugural Libraries Transform Communities Engagement Grant, a $2,000 prize funded by American Library Association (ALA) donors and matching funds from former ALA President Nancy Kranich. The award supports a new iteration of the program, which MPL hopes other libraries will replicate.
