Helen Keller with Zulu Tribe

South Africa -- As Counselor on International Relations for the American Foundation for Overseas Blind (AFOB), Miss Keller provided guidance and inspiration to the entire program. In 1946 she made the first of her many trips under the auspices of the Foundation to investigate the conditions and needs of blind people in all parts of the world. This year she undertook a 25,000 mile tour of Africa. There she addressed huge gatherings anxious to partake of her experiences concerning the special needs of the blind and deaf and the operation of nationwide programs. Miss Keller is photographed with members of the Zulu Tribe, Durban, Natal, Republic of South Africa. (1951)

Washington -- A bomb exploded in a women's restroom in the Pentagon early 5/19. There were no injuries when the explosion blew out 40 feet of the wall into adjoining corridors. The radical Weathermen claimed credit and said it was done to celebrate Ho Chi Minh's birthday. (1972)
