Professor Ruth Shagoury investigates the rebel legacy of Helen Keller
In an article shared on the Huffington Post, professor Ruth Shagoury investigates the rebel legacy of Helen Keller. More than just a “courageous” woman who overcame blindness, Keller was an activist of the first order—agitating around issues of disability and class, socialism, women, and war. “As a defiant rebel, she could be a true hero for 21st century activists,” writes Shagoury.
The article, “Who Stole Helen Keller?” was original published as part of the Zinn Education Project, to which Shagoury is a contributor.
