Booker T Washington-"Up From Slavery An Autobiography"-1907-Doubleday Page-5" X 8"-325 pages-Hardcover Book-With Photos-Signed By Author.Born a slave and deprived of any early education, Booker Taliaferro Washington nonetheless became America's foremost black educator of the early 20th century. He was the first teacher and principal of the Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama, a school for African-Americans where he championed vocational training as a means for black self-reliance. A well-known orator, Washington also wrote a best-selling autobiography (Up From Slavery, 1901) and advised Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft on race relations. His rather flaccid nickname of "The Great Accommodator" provides a clue as to why he was later criticized by W. E. B. Du Bois and the N.A.A.C.P. Washington was principal of Tuskegee Institute from 1881 until his death in 1915; it was originally called the Normal School for Colored Teachers and is now known as Tuskegee University. The book has been autographed on the title page by Booker T. Washington with a fountain pen in blue................BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN AVERAGE CONDITION....................
