On this DAY....first Negro on a Stamp....Booker Taliaferro Washington (199 hits)

The Story of the Negro is valuable in part because it is full of significant information taken from hundreds of obscure sources that would be nearly impossible to assemble today.

For instance, Washington discusses the rise of African American comedy .....

Washington was considered during his lifetime the spokesperson for African Americans by white society, particularly those in positions of power. This led to criticism from within the African American community, most notably from W. E. B. Du Bois, who considered Washington too accommodating of the white majority,

The Atlanta compromise was an agreement struck in 1895 between Booker T. Washington, president of the Tuskegee Institute, and Southern white leaders.
It was opposed by W. E. B. Du Bois and other African-American leaders.
