Booker T. Washington was a devoutly Christian man who, as a former slave, treaded a dangerous middle ground in a time of racial backlash and disfranchisement.

As he publicly acquiesced to whites on issues of social equality, he fiercely exhorted blacks to unite and improve their lot. Up From Slavery is an autobiography that recounts Washington's life from childhood as a slave, through his struggle for education, his founding and presidency of Tuskegee Institute and his rise to national prominence. This simply written, anecdotal life story bears the mark of a man of real cour age, talent, and dedication.
