Up From Slavery - Booker T. Washington

Booker T. Washington was of the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants, who were newly oppressed by disfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws. He mastered the nuances of the political arena in the late 19th century which enabled him to manipulate the media, raise money, strategize, network, and distribute funds.
