Helen Keller, a radical socialist;Cooper Union. Rare Footage of Helen Keller Speaking

Helen 學第一個字"it" 。經一周學習,可說出"I am not dumb now."。
Rare Footage of Helen Keller Speaking
Working with her instructor, the American author and political activist learned to talk despite being deaf and blind




如果這個社會可以在歌誦海倫凱勒勵志成長故事的同時,覺得她後半生聲援共產主義力倡社會平等是因為又聾又盲才被誤導,這種只許障礙者溫柔勵志,卻不許障礙者激進迎擊的社會,才是最該被檢舉的。

Political activities

Keller went on to become a world-famous speaker and author. She is remembered as an advocate for people with disabilities, amid numerous other causes. She was a suffragist, a pacifist, an opponent of Woodrow Wilson, a radical socialist and a birth control supporter.

Happy very birthday to American inspiration Helen Keller!
Keller and Bernstein met at a casual event at a friend's home, during which Bernstein performed a few compositions on the piano. As Bernstein began playing, Keller placed her hands on the piano lid, strings and keys. Keller said that Bernstein's performance was beautiful, and that even though she couldn't hear the music, the power of the vibrations, rhythm, and bass felt like music to her.

胡適說他25~26年前在Cooper Union聽過她演講,兩次都不好懂。
安徽教育出版社的"胡適日記"常亂翻譯,譬如說Cooper Union 翻譯成"製桶業者聯合會"。
Cooper Union其實是私立大學,所有入學學生都全額獎學金。
