Though he lived long years on this earth.

ON THIS DATE

Booker T Washington died 11/14/1915.  His mother was a slave, his father an unidentified white planter; Booker was born under slavery. He became educated, built up Tuskegee Institute and became the first black man invited to the White House.  He wrote several books but is best known for his Up From Slavery.

 

NOTE: now and then I see quotes said by bad/questionable characters.  Please do know a little about the person you quote.  W.E.B. Du Bois for example opposed Booker.  Dubois used his mouth while Booker poured his LIFE into helping the Negro.
