      • Booker T. Washington

        Booker Taliaferro Washington was an American educator, orator, author and the dominant leader of the African American community nationwide from the 1890s to his death Born to slavery and freed by the Civil War in 1865, as a young man, became head of the new Tuskegee Institute, then a teachers college for blacks It became his base of operations His Atlanta Exposition speech of 1895 appealed to middle class whites across the South, asking them to give blacks a chance to work and develop separately, while implicitly promising not to demand the vote White leaders across the North, from politicians to industrialists, from philanthropists to churchmen, enthusiastically supported Washington, as did most middle class blacks He was the organizer and central figure of a network linking like minded black leaders throughout the nation and in effect spoke for Black America throughout his lifetime Meanwhile a militant northern group, led by W E B Du Bois rejected Washington s self help and demanded recourse to politics, referring to the speech dismissively as The Atlanta Compromise The critics were marginalized until the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, at which point radical black leaders rejected Washington s philosophy and demanded federal civil rights laws.

    1. "If you want to be happy, if you want to live a contented life, if you want to live a life of genuine pleasure, do something for somebody else. When you feel unhappy, disagreeable, and miserable, go to someone else who is miserable and do that person an act of kindness, and you will find that you will be made happy. The miserable persons in this world are the ones whose hearts are narrow and hard; the happy ones are those who have great big hearts. Such persons are always happy." - Booker T. Was [...]


    2. Six stars for the text. This should be required study for every American. The lack of these attributes in all of us today has done no good. Take the description of the ethnic group to be your own and go from there.Mr. Sartor's Librivox reading gets 4 to 5 stars once you get past the british accent. Booker T. in a british accent is a bit difficult to get your mind around. It really is an excellent reading though until he tries to 'sing' the old gospel melodies late in the book. The renditions of [...]


    3. This is a book that needs to be read often as we need to be reminded of the importance of character and moral development. This is a book to read and reread. These are the kind of books I read as a teenager. And it is good to be reminded regarding the principles of character. Some of the principles taught were service to fellowman, treating everyone with respect, doing what you say you will do, working smart and hard to attain your goals. Don't be selfish. Live by the ten commandment. Be honorab [...]


    4. I really enjoyed reading this book, which was originally published in 1902. It is filled with wisdom for the young and old - of yesteryear as well as today. I have been taught how to live a better life as a result of reading this book. Young people should read this with their parents and/or their teachers.This was the first time I'd read any of Booker T. Washington's writings and I am so impressed with the man and educator that he was. What a gift he was to not just the African American communit [...]

    6. Every teacher and principal must read or hear this book. Is the speeches of an African American (x slave) towards his students. Self-motivation, discipline, motivational speeches that are timeless. Also gives you a very good understanding on the situations of the "recent recognized as man and human" African Americans. Realy a must so we don't forget the struggles of the previous generations on building humanity.


    7. This book contains a compilation of Mr. Washington’s Sunday talks at the Tuskegee Institution. Mr. Washington is a genius. His sermons are not only about Character building but also about building leadership. I will even go so far as to say this a spiritual book. These life lessons are for both children and adult alike. A must read book for everyone.


    8. A collection of Washington's speeches of encouragement. Most of the speeches were great except some really cringe worthy ones toward the end.


    9. Although this was incredibly boring to read, I appreciate the historical significance and realize that would be much greater orated than read.



    10. A must-read for those looking for practical solutions to racial upliftment or for those wanting to know what the black community could do to help themselves. Although many of the industrial and agricultural solutions he offers are outdated, it's still fruitful to see his perspective and how concerned leaders of today could make adjustments to his suggestions for this period in time. In addition to the emphasis on industrial education, Washington offers a practical guide for building character an [...]
