Celebrating Booker T. Washington

One Of Those Forward-Thinkers

Booker T. Washington was born into slavery, with slavery ending when he was a child.  He had a love of reading which, perhaps, many take for granted.  It is, after all, the most important skill a person can have.

This elegant-looking and eloquent-speaking man created the Tuskegee Institute.

For the unpleasant voices in the audience who believe Mr. Washington lacked achievement, this blogger has the following to say:  A person’s, or organization’s, achievements can be based on the conditions of the country in which they reside.

Booker T. Washington accomplished a great deal despite the conditions back yonder.

Coming from a family of educators, and other members who worked in the public school system, we are standing on Mr. Washington’s shoulders.

A salute to Mr. Washington and his donors (no person is an island!)  All courageous, forwarding-thinking individuals.
