Hidden Legacies of Helen Keller
September 17–18, 2022
Everyone thinks they know Helen Keller’s story. But Keller—an author, activist, fundraiser, advocate, sister, daughter, ambassador, friend, celebrity, and champion of women, people with disabilities and those living in poverty around the globe—defies easy description. Join the American Printing House and our co-sponsor The Filson Historical Society for a two-day symposium that will explore the hidden historical legacy and context of this great American. Conference registration is now open!
One museum, many stories.
Our online exhibits take you just a bit deeper and explore forgotten aspects of education and rehabilitation.
