Highly Recommended, May 19, 2008
Reviewer: anonymous

I highly recommend this story of Booker T Washingtons ascent. This book made real to me, like no other book has, the dehumanizing nature of slavery. The poverty Mr. Washington was raised in is truly unimaginable to the modern reader ( for example, he had never before slept in a bed that had sheets on it, and wasn't sure what he was supposed to do with the sheets.) It is also moving to see how members of his community, people who had nothing, gave what little they had so that this bright young man coud get an education.
Two caveats- some parts are boring lists of financial transactions; also, Mr.. Washington was a product of his time and his book accepts the practice of segregation.
