It’s time to rediscover Booker T. Washington, says Kenneth M. Hamilton, author of Booker T. Washington in American Memory.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Hamilton explains why Washington was the most important and influential African American of his time, why so many people mourned his death, why his reputation recently has fallen on hard times–and how we may need his message now more than ever.

    Thanks for bringing this, John. And thank you for taking the time to research and write it, Mr. Hamilton. I shall put it on my list.

    Inspiring interview – looking forward to this book. Mr. Hamilton, thank you for reminding me of a line from Up From Slavery,  read many years ago:

    That Yankee woman knew just where to look for dirt.
