“The public must learn that the blind man is neither genius nor a freak nor an idiot. He has a mind that can be educated, a hand which can be trained, ambitions which it is right for him to strive to realise, and it is the duty of the public to help him make the best of himself so that he can win light through work.”
Helen Keller with Anne Sullivan in 1888.
“Dr. Alexander Graham Bell clasps Miss Keller’s hand and taps out a message.” (Bell’s father on the top right of the photo)
