This paper presents both the ecological and systems perspectives for understanding and empowering Black Deaf persons in the context of their families and social systems. The term "Black Deaf Persons" can be referred to as African American Deaf persons or Black Deaf persons originally from America, Africa, Caribbean countries, or other countries. The learning objectives are to scrutinize and explicate both the ecological and systems framework for understanding the relationships that occur within Black families with Deaf members and among other social systems that are involved with Black Deaf persons, and planning and implementing creative interventions to adjust Black Deaf person-family- system relationships. Community resources that benefit Black Deaf persons and families are also discussed.
