His book Up From Slavery is a great read, and a lesson in what hard work and persistence can do.

absolutely true and possibly one of the best autobiographies there is.

Interesting. I am currently listening to Dinesh DeSouza’s new book, and in it he compares the diverging race relations approaches of W.E.B. Du Bois (I always thought the guy was a douchebag) to those held by by Booker T. Washington.

Du Bois: “Agitate, agitate, agitate, agitate.”

Washington: “Work, work, work, work.”
