Helen Keller: “I am not Dumb now.” Video!

Isn’t this amazing?

Another moment when you thank youtube, a demi-god of this era.

I’d never seen Helen Keller before:

Quite a rare material.

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.

I know this footage have been shown on lots of more recent materials, but I was little bit surprised that nobody uploaded this before on YT except some clips, so I upload the full-length version.
