    In the South of the 1890s, Booker T. Washington stood as the often controversial personification of the aspirations of the black masses. The Civil War had ended, casting uneducated blacks adrift or, equally tenuous, creating a class of sharecroppers still dependent on the whims of their former owners. Black Reconstruction, for all its outward trimming, had failed to deliver its promised economic and political empowerment.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this reading. Booker T Washington's message of hard work, perserverance and dignity is as vital today as it was 100 years ago. The fact that you can rise from sleeping in a gutter to changing people's thoughts and lives should be an inspiration to all nationalities and races. The reader had a gradnfatherly tone, and I felt drawn in to each story as if I was there watching it all happen. I would recommend this story to readers of all ages
