Helen Keller

Can you believe that a woman who’d been blind and deaf since infancy wrote 12 books? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to Helen Keller, one of the most remarkable people who ever lived. You’ll learn how a childhood illness left this once-precocious girl in a terrifying prison of darkness and silence, and how a young teacher named Anne Sullivan broke through and taught her how to communicate. Find out how Keller became the first deaf and blind person to ever graduate from college, and how she became a living symbol of the human spirit’s triumph over adversity. Never say you can’t do anything!
