About this BookŒæ
African-American educator, author, and leader Booker T. Washington addressed the students and staff at Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, the school he led from 1881 until his death in 1915, with several character-building speeches. In äóìOn Mother Earth,äó� Washington encourages students to embark on their lives and invest in their future by owning, living on, and working their own land. He believed in building a great and powerful race on an agricultural foundation. äóìYou had better begin life in a hollow tree and be a man, than begin it in a rented house and be a mere tool, the imitation of a man.äó�
