Story of the Negro by Booker T. Washington

Book Description

This is an account of Africans and Americans of African descent before, during and after slavery by one of the most important figures in the campaign for racial equality in the U.S.A. Beginning with a description of the African heritage of black Americans, Booker T. Washington goes on to focus on the history of the Atlantic slave trade and how slaves were exploited in North America, before detailing how slavery came to be abolished there and the effect it had on the African American population who found themselves finally free. His description of "The Negro as a Freeman" is particularly important because Washington was himself born a slave, freed at the age of nine, and witnessed this period of American history for himself. Authoritative and broad in scope, "The Story of the Negro" is an especially relevant book in this bicentennial year of the abolition of the slave trade throughout the British Empire.

Author Biography - Booker T. Washington

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was an American educator, author and leader of the African-American community. Born into slavery in south-western Virginia, he was freed following Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamtion of 1865 and became a teacher. He came to prominence with a speech in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1895 and advocated cooperation rather than confrontation as the most effective way of overcoming racism and achieving equality for African Americans.
