School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7‘The name Booker T. Washington is practically synonymous with the Tuskegee Institute of Alabama. How he got there, what he did there, and what his work meant to other African Americans and to our society in general are the focal points of this well-written biography. Washington's story is the epitome of the American Dream: he overcame the obstacles of slavery, poverty, and ignorance to become one of the most highly regarded men of his time, and he did so through hard work, perseverance, and commitment to his purpose. Nicholson's straightforward, chronological narrative is divided into six brief chapters, each illustrated with archival photographs. The book also has a helpful glossary, chronology, and index. However, the list of further reading only includes titles published by Chelsea House (with the exception of Washington's two books). Also, no sources are cited. Aside from these shortcomings, this is a readable introduction to a notable figure.‘Marilyn Heath, Greenwood High School, SC (c) Copyright 2010.
