Summary
"Born into slavery, young Booker T. Washington could only dream of learning to read and write. After emancipation, Booker began a five-hundred-mile journey, mostly on foot, to Hampton Institute, taking his first of many steps towards a college degree. When he arrived, he had just fifty cents in his pocket and a dream about to come true."--Amazon.com
Summary
A biography of the former slave and inspiring educator describes the hardships he overcame in youth, the circumstances that challenged his efforts to learn how to read, and his triumphant pursuit of a college education
