Caption: Booker Taliaferro Washington (1856-1915), US educator, author and politician. Montage of an image of Washington, born a slave in Virginia, and freed at the age of nine. He worked his way through Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute and attended college at Wayland Seminary. In 1881 he was named as the first leader of the new Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, a private, black university. His activities in politics included his famous Atlanta Address of 1895 (also called the Atlanta Compromise), where he successfully called on white businesses to employ African-Americans, rather than the immigrant population. Washington also raised funds from philanthropists to support black community schools. His autobiography 'Up From Slavery' (1901) is still widely read today.
