✏Up from Slavery Book Summary : In this acclaimed autobiography, Booker T. Washington makes a case for lifting up his race through education. Washington uses his personal story as the example, from his birth to slave parents on a Virginia plantation and his struggle to go to school to his adult achievements as a public speaker and black leader. Washington outlines more than forty years of his life, emphasizing how he overcame great obstacles in order to pursue his education at Hampton University. As an adult, he opened a school for black students in Tuskegee, Alabama, and later he established other successful vocational schools. Throughout the book, Washington describes his educational philosophy and his hopes and dreams for African Americans. This is an unabridged version of Booker T. Washington's life story, which was first published in 1901.
📒Up From Slavery An Autobiography ✍ Booker T. Washington
✏UP FROM SLAVERY An Autobiography Book Summary : This carefully crafted ebook: "UP FROM SLAVERY (An Autobiography)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Excerpt: Up From Slavery chronicles the life of Booker T. Washington from his days as a child slave during American Civil War to his journey though self-education and towards his growth as a prominent African American leader. This book became a best seller upon its publication in 1905 and impressed Theodore Roosevelt so much that he invited Washington to dine at White House. "I was born a slave on a plantation in Franklin County, Virginia. I am not quite sure of the exact place or exact date of my birth, but at any rate I suspect I must have been born somewhere and at some time. As nearly as I have been able to learn, I was born near a cross-roads post-office called Hale's Ford, and the year was 1858 or 1859. I do not know the month or the day. The earliest impressions I can now recall are of the plantation and the slave quarters—the latter being the part of the plantation where the slaves had their cabins. My life had its beginning in the midst of the most miserable, desolate, and discouraging surroundings." Booker T. Washington (1856–1915) was an American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants. He was also a key proponent of African-American businesses and one of the founders of the National Negro Business League.

📒Growing Up In Slavery ✍ Yuval Taylor
✏Growing Up in Slavery Book Summary : Culled from full-length autobiographies, the voices of ten slaves--all under the age of nineteen--describe the full range of slave experiences, from starvation, torture, and violence, to love, laughter, and family life. Ten slaves all under the age of 19 tell their stories of enslavement, brutality, and dreams of freedom in this collection. Culled from full-length autobiographies, these accounts were selected to help teenagers relate to the horrific experiences of slaves their own age in the not-so-distant past. Included are stories of young slaves, all under the age of 19, torn from their mothers and families, suffering from starvation, and being whipped and tortured. But these are not all tales of deprivation and violence. Teenagers will see themselves in these accounts as the slaves challenge authority, play games, tell jokes, and fall in love. These stories cover the range of the slave experience, from the passage in slave ships across the Atlantic to daily life as a slave both on large plantations and in small city dwellings, and from escaping slavery to fighting in the Civil War. The writings of Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, William Wells Brown, Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Keckley, and other less famous slaves are included.
📒Booker T Washington S Up From Slavery And The Life Of Frederick Douglass ✍ Booker Washington
✏Booker T Washington s Up from Slavery and the Life of Frederick Douglass Book Summary : This book contains both classics by Booker T. Washington and Frederick Douglass, both men who were born slaves but became world-renowned thinkers and educators in their time. The Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass was published eighteen years before the abolition of slavery in the United States, and describes the immense efforts Frederick Douglass went through to educate himself, free himself, and then work to free the rest of his country. Booker T. Washington's account, on the other hand, describes the tremendous task of building up the Tuskegee Institute, quite literally brick by brick, after Emancipation. The two books complement one another tremendously, each giving the other a sense of perspective and context.
📒Frederick Douglass ✍ Frances E. Ruffin
✏Frederick Douglass Book Summary : The life of the famous abolitionist.
📒The Death Of Reconstruction ✍ Heather Cox RICHARDSON
✏The Death of Reconstruction Book Summary : Historians overwhelmingly have blamed the demise of Reconstruction on Southerners' persistent racism. Richardson argues instead that class, along with race, was critical to Reconstruction's end. She reveals a growing backlash from Northerners against those who believed that inequalities should be addressed through working-class action, and the emergence of an American middle class that championed individual productivity and saw African-Americans as a threat to their prosperity.
