Booker T Washington

Booker T Washington

Booker T Washington, born into slavery, he became a leading African American intellectual and business figure in the 19th century. He founded the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, the National Negro Business League, and advised several Presidents in the post Reconstruction era. This seminar will explore several aspects of his life, career and legacy through his writings and speeches.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
