Helen Keller’s Socialism has been whitewashed. By Eileen Jones (Jacobin, June 4, 2021). “You wouldn’t know it from the whitewashed image of her as an angelic, unthreatening icon, but Helen Keller — yes, that Helen Keller — was a socialist.”

Remembering the Socialism of Helen Keller. By John Gianvito (Jacobin, May 17, 2021). “Helen Keller is well known to Americans as a writer, educator, and advocate for the disabled. But few know of her commitment to socialist politics as the route to a more just world.”

Helen Keller’s Socialism. By Keith Rosenthal (New Politics, No.70, Winter 2021). “A documentary on Helen Keller that is both inspiring and edifying.”

The politics of Helen Keller: Socialism and disability. By Keith Rosenthal (International Socialist Review, Issue 96, Spring 2015). “That she was a serious political thinker who made important contributions in the fields of socialist theory and practice, or that she was a pioneer in pointing the way toward a Marxist understanding of disability oppression and liberation—this reality has been overlooked and censored.”

The radical dissent of Helen Keller. By Peter Dreier (Truthout, April 18, 2015). “Here’s what they don’t teach: When the blind-deaf visionary learned that poor people were more likely to be blind than others, she set off down a pacifist, socialist path that broke the boundaries of her time—and continues to challenge ours today.

Who stole Helen Keller? By Ruth Shagoury (Common Dreams, June 26, 2012). “… textbooks and children’s literature distort her life’s work, and miss key opportunities to inspire young people to make a difference in the world.”

Helen Keller: Saint, socialist, subversive. By Sasha Callaghan (Socialist Review, Issue 345,  March 2010). “The story of Helen Keller’s ‘triumph over tragedy’ is widely known. But her commitment to socialist activism was less known.”

Why men need woman suffrage By Helen Keller (Frontline, Vol.1, No.19, 2006). “She was an opponent of war and a supporter of universal suffrage, which she argues for in this  article.”

The hidden history they won’t teach. By Paul D’Amato (Socialist Worker, US, Issue 531, February 18, 2005). “Alarmed at Keller’s newfound radicalism, the mainstream press insisted that the deaf, dumb and blind woman had been manipulated and duped.”

(YouTube.com; 28:42 min.). Helen Adams Keller in her story (June 27, 1880 June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree.The story of how Keller’s teacher, Annie Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become known worldwide through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker. A prolific author, Keller was well traveled and was outspoken in her opposition to war. She campaigned for women’s suffrage, workers’ rights, and socialism, as well as many other progressive causes.
