Copper Lodge Library: UP FROM SLAVERY

The autobiography of education pioneer and visionary founder of Tuskegee Institute – Booker T. Washington


- +

Booker T. Washington wrote this autobiography in 1901, chronicling his journey from slavery to education to freedom. On a societal level, Washington advocates hard work and inner peace as paths to success, particularly as an African-American in the post-Civil War South. Challenge I students compare and contrast Washington’s vision with the earlier Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass.
