HIST 2483 Booker T. Washington (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course examines the life, times, and legacy of Booker T. Washington, 1856-1915. A complex and often polarizing historical figure, Washington alienated almost as many as he influenced domestically and internationally with his conflicting public statements and private acts regarding race, politics, violence, education, capitalism, and foreign relations, but he never failed to elicit impassioned responses from adversaries and supporters alike. Despite his death in 1915, Washingtons ideas and influence continue to spark debate even today.
