Purpose: Although he was born in slavery, Booker T. Washington was destined to become a national and international figure, without prejudice, my purpose is to discuss the image of Booker T. Washington as reflected in the writings of distinguished historians of the south.
State Of Problem: The distinguished historian, John Hope Franklin, recently asserted, "the writing of history reflects the interests, predilections, and even prejudices of given generation," with this in mind, this writer will attempt to survey the field of historians of the south to see what they have said about Booker T. Washington, and to see if their interests, predilections, prejudices, and animosities affected their writings on Booker T. Washington.
