Description

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 his autobiography, he describes his early life as a slave on a Virginia plantation, his steady rise during the Civil War, his struggle for education, his schooling at the Hampton Institute, and his years as founder and president of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, which was devoted to helping minorities learn useful, marketable skills. 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 lies in education, industriousness, and self-reliance. This is the true-life story of a man of real courage and dedication.

      • source: Amazon.com editorial review
      • content: "Nineteenth-century African American businessman, activist, and educator Booker Taliaferro Washington's Up from Slavery is one of the greatest American autobiographies ever written. Its mantras of black economic empowerment, land ownership, and self-help inspired generations of black leaders, including Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, and Louis Farrakhan...The potency of his philosophies are alive today in the nationalist and conservative camps that compose the complex quilt of black American society."

      • content: This production offers an exemplary life in sound, with an outstanding reading by Andrew L. Barnes revealing Booker T. Washington as a sagacious American leader by any standard. From the first sentence to the last, Barnes's deep, expressive tones mold Washington's autobiography with a warm, stentorian resonance. In crisp and uncompromising style UP FROM SLAVERY presents a true historical overview of a period of intense cultural and racial change in our country. Washington's wit and humility shine throughout the recording, offering an unvarnished account that can serve as a fine educational tool for schools, libraries, and students of American history and African-American culture. Barnes is a patient, thoughtful reader--his gifts make this a memorable listen. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
