This book is about Booker T. Washington
"Booker T. Washington: Volume 2: The Wizard Of Tuskegee, 1901-1915" by Louis R. Harlan delves into the pivotal years of one of the most influential African American leaders. This compelling continuation, following its Bancroft Prize-winning predecessor, offers an intimate look at Washington's dual persona: a public figure of calm demeanor and a private ruthless power broker whose influence shaped the trajectories in politics, education, and business for many African Americans. Set against the backdrop of his escalating conflicts with contemporaries like W.E.B. Du Bois, this biography not only explores Washington’s adaptive leadership styles in response to growing opposition but also provides a critical reflection on the complexities of racial justice during a transformative period in American history. Published in 1986, this insightful work is indispensable for college students studying social justice, history, or leadership, prompting them to question and reflect on the evolution of racial justice and the price of power.
