Helen Keller’s Life and Legacy

Helen Keller was one of the world’s most heroic trailblazers for vulnerable people, and one of its most indelible examples of the power of the human spirit to overcome hardship. She triggered a watershed change for education, social justice, and health care for underrepresented groups of people and literally redefined our understanding of human potential.
