DEAFinitely Dope with Matthew Maxey

Presented by Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College at Midwest Trust Center at Johnson County Community College, Overland Park

September 29, 2022

Matthew Maxey hails from Decatur, Georgia, and currently resides in Atlanta. He was born with a severely profound hearing loss and outfitted with hearing aids at 2 years old. At an early age, it became apparent his life would be anything but ordinary. Fast forward as Maxey attended the prestigious Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., where he learned sign language to balance the struggle of developing his identity as a double minority in terms of ability and race.
In 2014, DEAFinitely Dope was founded to provide support to those who felt marginalized and ignored by mainstream America. DEAFinitely Dope started as a brand and slowly blossomed into a movement, attracting educational institutions, CNN, ESPN’s The Undefeated, GQ, Cole Haan, ABC news, Chance The Rapper, MTV Video Music Awards and countless more.

Presented in partnership with Johnson County Community College Access Services.
