Library's review

Born into slavery, Booker T. Washington could only dream of learning to read and write. After his emancipation, he journeyed 500 miles to attend Hampton Institute with only 50 cents in his pocket. Working his way through school, he eventurelly became a legendary educator of freedmen.
