The leading African American leader in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was Booker T. Washington. His conciliatory stance toward the white majority, preference for working behind the scenes rather than public protest to remedy discrimination, and emphasis on education in the practical trades for the black masses as opposed to a liberal arts education, all won favor with prominent white politicians and businessmen. Among many black intellectuals, however, Washington was a controversial figure. They criticized his lack of public emphasis on civil rights and felt that his leadership style almost guaranteed a bleak future of segregation and second-class status for blacks.In this book, a sequel to his famous autobiography, Up from Slavery (1901), he lays out his philosophy of hard work and cooperative attitudes in persuasive and reasonable terms. He describes the men and experiences that had a lasting influence on his thinking and the impressive achievements of his Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama.He also respectfully disagrees with his critics among black intellectuals. Chief among these was W. E. B. Du Bois, who criticized Washington’s slow, patient methods and passive stance in the teeth of so much injustice. Indeed, reading Washington’s account, one would never know that in the 1890s lynching reached an all-time high, that blacks were effectively disenfranchised in their own communities, and that the grip of poverty among African Americans was virtually ensured by the white power structure.However controversial his career, My Larger Education is still worth reading as an important document in African American history, and Washington’s emphasis on economic empowerment for blacks is a continuing theme to this day.

Tremendous book. This should be required reading all high schools in the US. If americans at large would get ahold of Washington's principle it would change our culture.
Fantastic! Unless you have some morbid goal to hate and divide, read, and use, and absorb all of his wisdom! Thanks, Dave (in Colorado)
Wow did this book do my heart good. Washington lifted my spirit in these pages. His vision for humanity soars above the politically correct politically formulated dehumanizing categories our media culture so blindly follows.

His insights because they emerge from an incredibly authentic soul are timeless and worthy of our attention in my opinion.
Another must read for a white man with few black friends.
well-written by a prominent African-American of his time
Great, Easy read, should be mandatory in Jr High. It give a perspective lost to ou younger generation.
