More About My Larger Education by Booker T. Washington
 
 
 
Overview
The primary voice of the African American community from 1890 to 1915, and the author of Up from Slavery, Booker T. Washington was an educator and orator as well as a founder of the Alabama school that developed into Tuskegee University. Washington proposed that most African Americans would benefit from a practical trade rather than a liberal arts education -- a position opposed by other black leaders, including W. E. B. Dubois, and the source of a debate that lingers to this day.
In this autobiographical work, Washington discusses how he arrived at his views on race relations, focusing on the importance of cooperation and teamwork and describing the experiences that led to the founding of Tuskegee. My Larger Education is essential reading for anyone wishing to learn more about Washington and his ideas as well as those seeking insights into the challenges faced by African Americans at the turn of the twentieth century.
