I am Deaf-blind, and I almost missed my first lesson about Helen Keller. In second-grade U.S. history, my teacher scheduled Helen Keller’s story after a lesson in square-dancing. I remember my heart racing as I danced a do-si-do with my not-so-secret crush. So when our teacher told us about Keller, I was not-so-secretly distracted.
"Hey, Texas. Students Need to Learn About Helen Keller. Don’t Remove Her." is from the September 19, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Haben Girma and narrated by Sam Scholl.
