The New York Times is taking a look back at the lives of leaders and visionaries and Helen Keller International’s co-founder and namesake Helen Keller was recently featured. The article paints a vivid picture of Helen Keller’s life as author, activist and humanitarian.
Keller spent much of her life championing global policy on vision loss and advocating on behalf of the visually impaired, and the article eloquently captures her legacy.
“Ms. Keller’s achievements and indomitable spirit helped alter public perceptions of disabled people, showing them as overcoming obstacles rather than as inviting only pity.”
