Remembering Helen Keller
Helen Keller, The Power of One

the first deafblind person to graduate from college ~
advocate for people with disabilities amid numerous other causes ~
suffragist, pacifist, radical socialist ~

“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
