Two Free Booker T. Washington Essays

Today's Resource of the Day

Case of the Negro & Awakening of the Negro

Download two of Booker T. Washington's most famous essays "Case of the Negro" (1896) and "Awakening of the Negro" (1899). Confronting the New South after the Civil War, Washington argues with eloquent prose for African Americans to embrace self reliance, hard work, and education in order to advance toward a better future in their communities. He opposed violent and confrontational protesting and felt that angry mobs could not overcome racism in the long run.
