Remembering Booker T. Washington, November 14, 1915

The Black Blogger didn't get a chance to remember the date that Booker T. Washington died on November 14, 1915. So today on my blog I will go back 105 years to Mr. Booker T. Washington's last public speech that he gave on August 18, 1915, to The National Negro Business League in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition, I also discussed shortly the brutal beating that Mr. Booker T. Washington was given in New York City in March of 1911. Not many know that America's supposed foremost voice of the African American's accommodationist policy was brutalized by White Americans at the end of his life but he was. Still, four years later in this speech, Booker T. Washington spoke of the hope America promised the African American race. Rest in Peace, and God Bless You Forever.
