February Book of the Month: Up From Slavery

 

“I have begun everything with the idea that I could succeed, and I never had much patience with the multitudes of people who are always ready to explain why one cannot succeed.”

 

Up From Slavery

Booker T. Washington

In 1902 Booker T. Washington wrote his autobiography detailing his life from childhood as a slave during the Civil War, following his passion for education and determination as the way to better oneself and his life as a public speaker.  His story is motivational, inspiring and enduring making it the perfect read in Black History Month.
