Booker T. Washington, arguably one of the most influential figures in Black america, never WAITED on jesus to lift him from slavery. He FOUGHT his way out of slavery!
He didn’t stop there, Washington then wen on to be a statesman, educator, political activist, and a leader in the “do-it-yourself” idea which is the 20th century equivalent of the #WakeUp movement.
Washington deftly sets forth his belief that the black man’s salvation lies in education, industriousness, and self-reliance. This is the true-life story of a man of real courage and dedication.
Founder of Tuskegee Institute Booker Taliaferro Washington (1856-1915)
