The author unveils Booker T. Washington’s contributions to the development and history of progressive education, while exposing the ignorance of his critics and the distortions that have defined his legacy. He writes that Washington has not been adequately or fairly portrayed, nor is he given an appropriate place in history. Instead, he is viewed as an accommodator and a conservative compromiser, willing to appease whites at the expense of African American rights and social development.
This negative image of Washington distorts his historical significance as an African American leader and educator, and he has been largely ignored in the history of progressive education. The book places Washington into the appropriate historical context, and calls into question the misinformation associated with this great American.
