Publisher's Summary

Booker T. Washington's Up from Slavery is his self-reflection that recaptured his younger years as a slave in rural Virginia, his journey through higher education, and his life as a successful, influential statesman. Though he faced numerous hardships including devastating enslavement and surviving the turbulence and devastation of the Civil War, Washington rose to a position of international power and prominence. He became one of the most influential and well-respected African American intellectuals, thought-leaders, and advocates of the 19th century. He went on to advise President Theodore Roosevelt, to establish and become president of the Tuskegee Institute, and to gain notoriety worldwide as an oratory leader. Up from Slavery is a true inspiration and testament to the grit, courage, and wisdom of a man determined to beat all odds.

The Beginning of Freedom For All.

A victorious true account of the struggles of one black negro, who was determined to succeed against all odds for himself. Paving the way for all negros, coloured, under privileged white's or other otherwise. Couldn't help to think of how dismayed & gutted Booker T. Washington, would feel, to see what is going on today with his fellow man & race in the U.S.A. How the BLM founders have taken over & are deceiving the young minds of his race, bulldozing them on to the road to self destruction. There is no honor at the end, in this way of the BLM.

A fascinating journey back in time...

This audiobook is soooo interesting simply because it puts you way back in time and gives you an idea of how times must have been in Washington's day / when slavery was still common. A great first-hand account - highly recommended.

Listen to how Washington came up from slavery and who of his contemporaries he met.

Dry reader, interesting story.

BTW was a great orator and a witty man. It would be better were the reader more animated.
