Booker T. Washington was one of the first nationally recognized African American leaders after the Civil War.

Booker became a leader in education heading the Tuskegee Institute for more than 30 years and working with other universities.

He authored 14 books, and many articles and speeches, including his autobiography, Up from Slavery.
