Up From Slavery

Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington
By: (1856-1915)

Up From Slavery is the 1901 autobiography of Booker T. Washington detailing his slow and steady rise from a slave child during the Civil War, to the difficulties and obstacles he overcame to get an education at the new Hampton University, to his work establishing vocational schools—most notably the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama—to help black people and other disadvantaged minorities learn useful, marketable skills and work to pull themselves, as a race, up by the bootstraps. He reflects on the generosity of both teachers and philanthropists who helped in educating blacks and native Americans. He describes his efforts to instill manners, breeding, health and a feeling of dignity to students.

Reviews (Rated: 4 Stars - 1 review)

Reviewer: - June 16, 2015
Subject: memoir
Once one gets past 1 or 2 chapters each read by loose dentures, accents, missed words, speed reading and finally some good readers then one can try to concentrate on the content. An amazing man trying to balance on a deadly fence while accomplishing incredible feats in a time in history of the transition of an entire race of people.
