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.
