The Autobiography Of Booker T. Washington

“I was born a slave on a plantation in Franklin County, Virginia. I am not quite sure of the exact date of my birth, but at any rate I suspect I must have been born somewhere and at some time. As nearly as I have been able to learn, I was born near a cross-roads post-office called Hale’s Ford, and the year was 1858 or 1859. I do not know the month or the day. The earliest impressions I can now recall are of the plantation and the slave quarters—the latter being the part of the plantation where the slaves had their cabins.”

Thus begins Booker T. Washington’s fascinating autobiography, an important milestone in American history.
