Description

Booker T. Washington believed that every man and woman deserved a chance, regardless of their skin color. This classic work of literature relays the story of a man born into slavery who, once freed, pursued education and racial equality. Originally published in 1901, the new edition of Booker T. Washington's autobiography features a foreword from media personality and advocate for the advancement of African Americans, Mychal Massie.

Author Biography

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was born into slavery and freed after the Civil War in 1865. After completing his education and teaching at Hampton Institute, he headed the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. Upon giving his famous Atlanta Compromise Speech, Washington became a national figure and received an honorary master's degree from Harvard University and an honorary doctorate from Dartmouth College. The publication of Up from Slavery garnered Washington an invitation from Pres. Theodore Roosevelt to visit the White House, the first given to an African American. In addition to appearing on national television programs such as The O'Reilly Factor, Mychal Massie is a syndicated columnist for WorldNetDaily and the former host of Rightalk Radio's "Straight Talk." The outspoken media personality is the chairman of the National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives, Project 21. The Conservative Party of New York State recognized him as the Conservative Man of the Year in 2008. Massie lives in Zion Hill, Pennsylvania.
