Helen Keller & Annie Sullivan: From Darkness to Light

“A bend in the road is not the end of the road…Unless you fail to make the turn.” ~Helen Keller

Most of us know Helen Keller as the deaf-blind woman who was able to break out of her “double dungeon of darkness and silence” through the teaching and determination of young Anne Sullivan, who herself struggled with partial blindness. But less well-known are other fascinating details about Helen Keller… and the equally admirable teacher who dedicated her life to supporting Helen’s dreams. 

Once referred to by Winston Churchhill as “the greatest woman of our age,” Helen Keller’s story extends far beyond what we see in the classic play and film, “The Miracle Worker.” 

From her breakthrough with language at the well, to her friendship with Alexander Graham Bell and Mark Twain, to her work as an advocate for social change, to the accusations of fraud, Candy and Ashley discuss how Helen was able to navigate the many “bends in the road” she encountered with strength and conviction.
