"Shine on Me:" a Book Review

Helen Keller, an icon of American history, was a woman of intelligence, discipline, and ambition who made a significant impact on society in spite of being born blind and deaf. It is good to remember that others have faced similar circumstances and succeeded as well. Margaret Vizinau was one. An African-American born in segregated rural Arkansas, Vizinau became a celebrated singer and choir director in San Francisco. Her blindness from birth adds an extra dimension to her accomplishments. 

The woman chronicled in this story accomplished much, and I wish I had been able to give the book a rave review.
