Available in Stock
Born a slave and freed in 1865 at the age of nine, Booker T Washington went on to become one of the most influential educationalists in US history. First published in 1909, this authoritative and eloquent classic charts the history of the slave trade, the exploitation of slaves in America, and how slavery came to be abolished. Washington also outlines his vision of how African- Americans might prosper in American society: a rallying-call that still resonates today.
