Up From Slavery
Editor, Booker T. Washington and Black Progress: Up From Slavery 100 Years Later (Bedford Books, 2003), 240 pages.

Booker T. Washington’s rise from slavery to the presidency of the Tuskegee Institute and an adviser to American presidents and tycoons is an extraordinary saga of talent, ambition, and accommodation. Inspired by the centenary of the publication of Washington’s autobiography, Up From Slavery, this collection of essays reinterprets Washington’s career and self-presentation. Collectively and individually, these essays shed light on aspects of Washington and his life that have been poorly understood.
