Helen Keller was an American author and activist. She was born in 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. When she was very young, Keller developed an illness that caused her to become deaf and blind. A teacher named Anne Sullivan taught her to communicate by signing on people’s hands. Keller later learned to read Braille at a school for blind children. As she got older, Keller started to write about her experiences. She also gave lectures to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. Keller even helped found the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization meant to protect human rights in the United States. Throughout her life, Keller received many awards for her work. She died in 1968, at the age of 87.
