Happy Birthday To One Brilliant Lady

Helen Keller Day honors the birth of Helen Keller, born June 27. Keller's birthday received awareness when observed by a presidential proclamation in the 1980's. Organizations helping the blind annually observe this special day. 

Helen Keller (June 27, 1880 - June 2, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. The first deaf/blind individual to earn a bachelor of arts degree. Anne Sullivan, Helen's teacher, has a lot to do how Helen's life turned out. The play The Miracle Worker tells Helen's story and how Anne helped break through to the world that she lived in.
