Rare newsreel footage of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan

Sebastian sent a long a link to this rare video of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, taken from a 1930s newsreel.

Helen Keller, the American author, political activist and lecturer, whom I don’t have to explain much about, and her instructor and lifelong companion, Anne Sullivan, appears in a Vitaphone newsreel from 1930. In this footage Sullivan shows the way how Helen Keller learned to talk. The final line of this footage, “I Am Not DUMB now!” is somewhat touching.
