July 21 – 10:00 a.m.
Everyone has the ability to be a leader. Some leaders are natural, while other need guidance to reach their full potential. After building a strong educational tradition at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, Booker T. Washington became the most influential African America of his time.
How did he make the transition from being a slave to a leader? What were some the obstacles he had to overcome? How can we use his experience as a road map to reach our leadership potential?
Young people are invited to explore these questions on July 21, 2007 at 10:00 a.m. as the park presents “To Be a Leader.” This program is for young people 6 -12 years old. Free registration is required, so please call a Park Ranger at (540) 721-2094.
