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.
