Booker T. Washington by Emma Lou Thornbrough( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book about the life of Booker T. Washington. Booker Taliaferro Washington (1856 - 1915) was an African-American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants, who were newly oppressed by disfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1895 his Atlanta compromise called for avoiding confrontation over segregation and instead putting more reliance on long-term educational and economic advancement in the black community. His base was the Tuskegee Institute, a historically black college in Alabama. As lynchings in the South reached a peak in 1895, Washington gave a speech in Atlanta that made him nationally famous. The speech called for black progress through education and entrepreneurship. Washington mobilized a nationwide coalition of middle-class blacks, church leaders, and white philanthropists and politicians, with a long-term goal of building the community's economic strength and pride by a focus on self-help and schooling

Indiana Blacks in the twentieth century by Emma Lou Thornbrough( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indiana Blacks in the Twentieth Century is the long-awaited sequel to Emma Lou Thornbrough's classic study The Negro in Indiana Before 1900. This posthumous volume chronicles the growth, both in numbers and in power, of African Americans in a northern state that was notable for its antiblack tradition. Thornbrough (1913-1994), the acknowledged dean of black history in Indiana, shows the impact of the Great Migration during World War I and World War II, when African Americans moved north to Indiana to work in war industries. She links the growth of the black community to the increased segregation of the 1920s, and demonstrates how World War II marked a turning point in the movement in Indiana to expand the civil rights of African Americans."--Jacket
