TUSKEGEE, AL– Join the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. for "Booker T. Washington: Living through Emancipation". This presentation will chronicle Washington’s life and the present societal environment during the times in which he lived. Be prepared to explore information that may change the way in which you previously perceived this great American visionary. Be prepared to learn what made Booker T. Washington a man of excellence.
Booker T. Washington lived at a time in history when there was great uncertainly, not only in terms of the fate of blacks in society, but also in terms of the country’s sectionalism that spawned the Civil War. The abolitionist movement forged by those seeking moral co-existence, revealed from the shadows great men. And the events of the times meant an eminent political, social and legislative change from the status quo.
The George Washington Carver Museum is managed by the National Park Service and located on the campus of Tuskegee University, 1200 West Montgomery Road, Tuskegee Alabama. Parking is available in the garage adjacent to the Kellogg Center. This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, call (334) 727-3200 or visit www.nps.gov/tuin.
