Link: Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller speak!

I was blown away today by this rare footage from 1930 of Anne Sullivan, Helen Keller's teacher, talking about how she taught Helen how to speak with her mouth. Just fascinating, and an incredible accomplishment for both of them.

Here is the link.


  1. That's amazing. Thanks for sharing :-)

  2. Keller's account of the day she first grasped language (rather than mere sign-making) is among the most moving in the English language.

  3. You're welcome, of course, Hayley.

    OFLoinn, I entirely agree. Reading about it, as a child, was life-changing for me.
