Up from Slavery
by Booker T. Washington and Ishmael Reed and Robert J. Norrell




Overview -
The dramatic autobiographical account of Booker T. Washington's unique American experience--a struggle against social and ideological bias that he began as a slave and never stopped.

"Washington's story of himself, as half-seen by himself, is one of America's most revealing books."--Langston Hughes

Historically acknowledged as one of America's most powerful and persuasive orators, Booker T. Washington consistently challenged the forces of racial prejudice at a time when such behavior from a black man was unheard of. While his stance on the separation of the races would become controversial, he worked tirelessly to convince blacks to work together as one people in order to improve their lives and the future of their race.

Spanning from his fight for education through his founding of the world-renowned Tuskegee Institute, Washington's Up from Slavery remains one of the most significant and defining works in American literature.
