Overview

Up from Slavery by Booker T. Washington, Noah Waterman

Booker T. Washington, the most recognized national leader, orator and educator, emerged from slavery in the deep south, to work for the betterment of African Americans in the post Reconstruction period.

"Up From Slavery" is an autobiography of Booker T. Washington’s life and work, which has been the source of inspiration for all Americans. Washington reveals his inner most thoughts as he transitions from ex-slave to teacher and founder of one of the most important schools for African Americans in the south, The Tuskegee Industrial Institute.

Booker T. Washington’s words are profound. Washington includes the address he gave at the Atlanta Cotton States and International Exposition in 1895, which made him a national figure. He imparts ‘gems of wisdom’ throughout the book, which are relevant to Americans who aspire to achieve great attainments in life.

Listeners will appreciate the impassioned delivery of the reader, Andrew L. Barnes. Legacy Audio is proud to present this audio book production of "Up From Slavery" by Booker T. Washington.

I believe this is one of the most inspiring peices of African American literiture. This autobiography of Booker T. Washington tells ofhis quest tp get an education despite all of his boyhood oppressions and turmoil. I think this is wonderful book becuase it gives you a new found respect for educators and people who want to be educated. I belive a person cannot read this book and not share in it's pride, dedication and morals of Booker. Being bornas a slave and to become what he became was such a magnificent feat for the African American race at that time. I believe whoever reads this book will feel inspired to strive for the best they can at whatever there doing. I think if everybody had the mindset of Booker T. Washington, then the world would be a better place for us, and the next generation to follow. In other words, I would recomend this book to people that need inspiration and enlightenment on achieving goals!

Washington has some very important arguments that are just as useful to incorporate into contemporary life as it was important back then.
