Booker T.

In recognition of Black History Month it was my pleasure to speak to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in Raleigh last week on the topic “Booker T. Washington: Savior of His Race or Traitor?” We had a great discussion and the audience argued for and against the question posed in the title of the presentation.

I used electronic responders to engage the audience on a quiz about the life of Mr. Washington as we traveled through the PowerPoint slides. I wouldn’t call the slide below a trick question but 2/3 of the audience missed it. George Washington Carver was the scientist at Tuskegee recognized for his peanut research, not Booker T. Washington.
