The Atlanta Exposition Address

The Atlanta Exposition Address
Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington (1856 -- 1915) Up From Slavery is the 1901 autobiography of Booker T. Washington detailing his slow and steady rise from a slave child during the Civil War, to the difficulties and obstacles he overcame to get an education at the new Hampton University, to his work establishing vocational schools—most notably the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama—to help black people and other disadvantaged minorities learn useful, marketable skills and work to pull themselves, as a race, up by the bootstraps. He reflects on the generosity of both teachers and philanthropists who helped in educating blacks and native Americans. He describes his efforts to instill manners, breeding, health and a feeling of dignity to students.

He had to be very political when giving this speech. It was a? speech given before blacks, immigrant whites, former Confederates, and former Union soldiers, etc. So he had to conduct himself in a way that wouldn't offend any of these of competing peoples. That was a very hard thing to do, but he pulled it off.
