Cartoon Network’s Emmy, GLAAD, and Annie nominated show “Craig of the Creek” follows a young boy, Craig, and his friends’ adventures around their favorite creek, and it recently highlighted Black American Sign Language (BASL) in one of their episodes.

In the episode, Craig’s friend Jackie speaks in a dialect of sign language, BASL, which is different from American Sign Language (ASL), due to cultural and historical differences which is credited to the segregation of deaf schools.

Jackie communicates with his dad, telling him that he’ll be safe when he’s out, and all of Jackie’s friends communicate to him using BASL throughout the clip and episode.
