On reading Booker T. Washington's classic autobiography, Up from Slavery, Langston Hughes noted, "(Washington's) story of himself, as half-seen by himself, is one of America's most revealing books." "I was born a slave on a plantation in Franklin County, West Virginia. My life had its beginnings in the midst of the most miserable, desolate, and discouraging surroundings." So begins the famous autobiography that helped make Booker T. Washington the most prominent black spokesman of his time. Simple in its style and anecdotal in its approach, Up from Slavery, published to great acclaim in 1901, vividly recounts Washington's birth into slavery, his yearning for education, and his single-minded vision of building an educational center for black students, the Tuskegee Institute. A shrewd diplomat and a tireless promoter of the importance of education for black Americans, Washington cut a controversial figure in his own day.

For the 50 years that followed its original publication in 1901, Up from Slavery was the most widely known book made by an African American. The life of Booker T. Washington was the embodiment of the American self-made-man, and his autobiography gave voice for the first time to a vast group that had to pull itself up from nothing. The observations of this humble schoolmaster reveal traces of Washington's other nature: the ambitious and tough-minded analyst. Here was a man who had to balance the demands of his fellow blacks with the constraints imposed on him by whites. One of America's most powerful and persuasive orators, Washington challenged the forces of racial prejudice at a time when such behavior from a black man was unheard of. Includes a companion ebook.

Unabridged audio CD; approximately 8.5 hours; 6 CDs; read by Jonathan Reese.
