This book is currently not available

With skills like farming, carpentry, and sewing, Booker T. Washington believed that blacks could find acceptance in the racist white society of the late 1880s. His school became a leading educator of African Americans, and he became a powerful national figure, advising business owners and even presidents. Though many considered Washington the most important black leader of his time, some other black leaders criticized his accommodating Uncle Tom views. In simple language, the McKissacks clarify Booker T. Washington's philosophy, accomplishments, and place in history.
