    I wonder whether ACLU and NAACP have Tweets out. A larger-than-life character, for sure.

    Helen Keller has so many achievements I have to wonder why the Library of Congress chose that lame fact to tweet except that maybe they want to it perpetuate the myth that she was a victim. Rather than show her as a person of agency she is described as a student. And Bell’s name is mentioned twice on a tweet that is supposed to celebrate her birthday. Keller was a founder of the ACLU, a supporter of the NAACP and worked and spoke tirelessly for labor, feminist, suffragette and pacifist movements. Not to mention her advocacy for the disabled. Library of Congress fail.
