Product Description

About the Author

Booker T. Washington was an African-American teacher, author, presidential advisor, and civil-rights leader. Born in Virginia in 1856, Washington was of the last generation born into slavery. After emancipation, Washington attended college in Virginia, and gained fame as a result of his 1895 speech about the importance of educating African Americans and his belief that African Americans were capable of great feats through education. Washington s contribution to educational equality was made greater by his influence in the social circles of millionaires and self-starters, and he was the first African American invited to the White House by President Theodore Roosevelt.

Booker T. Washington published five books with the aid of ghost writers, among them his first autobiography The Story of My Life and Work and his bestselling second biography Up from Slavery, which earned him his invite to the White House. Washington was also responsible for founding the National Negro Business League, which has, since 1966, been incorporated into Washington D.C. as the National Business League.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Insight on Booker T. Washington and the time period Dec 30 2013
By Adventure Reader - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mr. Washington has written numerous books and articles that shared both his personal experiences and his thoughts on the time period and racial tensions, possible solutions, and the future of African-Americans.
This book is an excellent addition to anyone wishing to learn more about the early 1900s and racial issues in America, and definitely for anyone who is studying the works of Booker T. Washington.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow did this book do my heart good. Washington lifted my spirit in these pages March 11 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow did this book do my heart good. Washington lifted my spirit in these pages. His vision for humanity soars above the politically correct politically formulated dehumanizing categories our media culture so blindly follows.

His insights because they emerge from an incredibly authentic soul are timeless and worthy of our attention in my opinion.
