Booker T. Washington fought his way out of slavery to become an educator, statesman, political shaper and proponent of the "do it yourself" idea. In Up from Slavery, his autobiography, he describes his childhood of slavery on a Virginia plantation, his struggle for education, his schooling at Hampton Institute, and his founding and presidency of Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. He gives an account of his travels, speeches, and meetings with various leaders including Theodore Roosevelt in the White House. Employing a didactic tone, Washington deftly sets forth his belief that the black man's salvation lay in education, industriousness, and self-reliance. This it the true life story of a man of real courage and dedication.
