Item description for Up From Slavery: The Autobiography Of Booker T. Washington: Aun Autobiography by Booker T. Washington...

"I was born a slave on a plantation in Franklin County, Virginia. I am not quite sure of the exact date of my birth, but at any rate I suspect I must have been born somewhere and at some time. As nearly as I have been able to learn, I was born near a cross-roads post-office called Hale's Ford, and the year was 1858 or 1859. I do not know the month or the day. The earliest impressions I can now recall are of the plantation and the slave quarters-the latter being the part of the plantation where the slaves had their cabins." Thus begins Booker T. Washington's fascinating autobiography, an important milestone in American history.

Booker T. Washington  Aug 8, 2007
Very interesting perspective on slavery from someone who actually lived through it. All slave tales are not alike.
Booker T Washington  May 9, 2007
Product was on time and in good condition. Would order from you again.
Well-written story of an amazing man  May 8, 2007
I knew next to nothing about Booker T. Washington prior to reading this book. Now I feel honored to have had his story shared with me. Despite the risk of sounding cliche, he has become an inspiration and hero to me. If not for his convictions and spirit, he would have been quite ordinary. Instead, he accomplished incredible goals, overcoming unimaginable feats, and has reached an inumerable amount of people, generation after generation. This book is a mainstay on my bedside table. Required reading for all.
Inspirational Autobiography  Apr 10, 2007
This autobiography of an African American intellectual will inspire you. See how Washington rose from nothing to hold a respectable place in American history.
Inspiring & Uplifting  Mar 29, 2007
The life story of Booker T. Washington was uplifting and inspiring. This shows that a person can arise from the ashes of their life, and make something worthwhile of themselves. Being born a slave was a major set back in their lives. Booker was determined to received and education at any cost, and he succeeded. Nothing was handed to him. Hard work and perserverance was the only way he could accomplish his goals.
Through turbalent times after the Civil War, Booker united the white and black race. Together they worked to build one of the finest educational institution in the south-Tuskegee, renamed Tuskegee University.
