Booker T Washington


Price: $18.99


Booker T. Washington was born a slave on a Virginia farm, and became an American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. He was one of the foremost African-American leaders of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and founded the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, now known as Tuskegee University.

Although Washington clashed with other black leaders such as W. E. B. Du Bois and drew ire for his seeming acceptance of segregation, he is recognized for his educational advancements and attempts to promote economic self-reliance among African Americans.

The quote was taken from his autobiography, Up From Slavery:

“No white American ever thinks that any other race is wholly civilized until he wears the white man’s clothes, eats the white man’s food, speaks the white man’s language, and professes the white man’s religion.” 

Available Colors: Army Green, Black, Dark Heather, Navy Blue, Cardinal Red
