Join The Gist of Freedom as welcome author Dr. Tyrene Wright, “Booker T. Washington And Africa, The Making of A Pan Africanist.”
A Booker T. Washington scholar, Dr. Wright takes a different approach to examining Washington and the Tuskegee model. Her research focuses on Booker T. Washington's role and relationship with African people and Africa which argues that Washington's role was to promote sustainable agriculture, and economic models amongst African communities worldwide. She is the author of Booker T. Washington and Africa (forthcoming) which is the first book of its kind, and covers two international policy cases: The Liberian Crisis, and the African Exclusion Measure, where Washington proves himself to be an adept Pan-Africanist and negotiator for African people.
This book establishes that Booker T. Washington belongs amongst the canon of Pan Africanists that shaped the 20th century, therefore the discourse and narrative on Booker T. Washington has shifted. CLICK FOR MORE

Booker T. Washington was the most famous black man in America between 1895 and 1915. He was also considered the most influential black educator of the late 19th and early 20th centuries insofar as he controlled the flow of funds to black schools and colleges.
Invited to speak at the 1895 Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta, Washington publicly accepted disfranchisement and social segregation as long as whites would allow black economic progress, educational opportunity, and justice in the courts.
"The wisest of my race understand that the agitation of questions of social equality is the extremest folly and that progress in the enjoyment of all the privileges that will come to us must be the result of severe and constant struggle rather than artificial forcing. The opportunity to earn a dollar in a factory just now is worth infinitely more than to spend a dollar in an opera house."

I had the honor and pleasure of enjoying a wonderful conversation with author Paulette Davis-Horton, creator of the book "Death in 60 Days: Who Silenced Booker T. Washington?" - A Nurse's View
When I thought about how Booker T. Washington died when she posed the question to me, I, like so many others before me, didn't have a clue! This made me understand how important the work of Ms. Davis-Horton was as she took the time to tediously research this mystery by taking the time to pound the pavement to interview older Pastors and relevant connected people who could have shed any light on what really happened to Booker T. Washington in his last hours here on this earth.
After listening to the process in which she discovered what happened to this great man, you will realize the irony in the saying that "The Truth Is Always Stranger Than Fiction!"
