📒Booker T Washington And Black Progress ✍ W. Fitzhugh Brundage
✏Booker T Washington and Black Progress Book Summary : Inspired by the centenary of the publication of Washington's autobiography, Up From Slavery, this collection of essays reinterprets Washington's career and self-presentation. As the most visible and widely acclaimed black leader of his era, Washington played a pivotal role in advocating a strategy for the racial uplift of African Americans in an age of intensifying racism and discrimination. This collection insists that in order to understand the era of Jim Crow, we must come to terms with Washington and his autobiography. It uses Washington, his autobiography, and his program to consider the meanings of Up From Slavery, the plight of African Americans, and possible responses by blacks in the United States and elsewhere to the highest stage of white supremacy. Collectively and individually, these essays shed light on aspects of Washington and his life that have been poorly understood. Neither a critique nor an apologia, Booker T. Washington and Black Progress offers fresh perspectives by leading scholars on one of the most remarkable and influential figures in turn-of-the-century America, providing a new appreciation of both the man and his times.

✏Up From Slavery Book Summary : Booker T. Washington (1856 - 1915) was born into slavery in Virginia. After emancipation he worked his way through college, attending the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute (today, Hampton University) and Wayland Seminary, became a teacher; then was chosen to be the first leader of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, a position he held the rest of his life. As educator, orator and author, he was a dominant leader of the African American community and gained national prominence after his "Atlanta Address of 1895," in which he spoke about the topic of race relations. His autobiography, Up From Slavery, which is still widely read today, was one of fourteen books he published.

📒Up From Slavery 100 Copy Collector S Edition ✍ Booker T Washington
✏Up From Slavery 100 Copy Collector s Edition Book Summary : Booker T. Washington grew up as a slave child during the Civil War. His autobiography describes the difficulties and obstacles he overcame to get an education, and his work helping black people and other disadvantaged minorities learn useful, marketable skills to elevate themselves as a race. Up from Slavery chronicles more than forty years of Washington's life: from slave to schoolmaster to the face of southern race relations. America in the 1880's and 1890's was an intense time of hostility towards African American communities. When Washington began his writing and public speaking, he was fighting the notion that African Americans were inherently stupid and incapable of civilization. Washington's primary goal was to impress upon the audience the possibility of progress, without inviting violence from the mob. The book inspired a 2011 seven-part documentary about Black Slavery in America. This cloth-bound book includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket, and is limited to 100 copies.
