Actual newsreel footage of Sullivan and Keller. I cannot even imagine how intelligent Helen Keller must have been to learn language by fingerspelling, let alone figure out how to speak.

    What a beautiful clip!!! Thank you for sharing this remarkable woman. In our fast-paced world we forget what it took for these women to accomplish what they did. May they never be forgotten!
