Helen Keller: politically incorrect rebel girl

program date: 
Mon, 06/06/2011

Helen Keller is a beloved bleeding-heart symbol of personal perseverance, an "unmitigated American folk-hero" even, but what we hardly hear in school is that she persevered against capitalism and in solidarity with the radical left movements of her time. This short essay, read by Joe Clement and published at On This Deity, pays tribute to that legacy. At the end is a clip of a Joe Hill song, The Rebel Girl, sung by Hazel Dickens. That song can be found HERE, but note that the music is preceded by about a minute of narration.
