Helen Keller was an inspirational lady. Born without the ability to see and hear, life was tough for Keller. She grew isolated, but it is with the help of her teacher Anne Sullivan that she learned to communicate. Keller blossomed under her teacher’s care. She became the first blind and deaf person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree.
This video is rare footage from 1930. Keller can be seen sitting with her teacher Anne Sullivan. Sullivan is explaining how she taught Keller to recognize sounds and words. She would keep Keller’s hand on her face, and the vibrations from the words allowed Keller to recognize the sound. The first sentence Keller learned to speak was “I am not dumb now”. Their inspirational story has been portrayed in the movie “The Miracle Worker”.
