Washington’s View of the Future

In a way Booker T. Washington’s view of the future is similar to my view of the future.

Washington thought that the black population would eventually gain respect form the rest of the country even though they were at the bottom economically. The blacks did eventually gain respect, but almost a century after the abolishment of slavery. The Tuskegee Institute, which was co-founded by Washington, was a huge part in helping the southern blacks rise up from their former lives in slavery.

Without Washington and the Tuskegee Institute it most likely would have taken the whole black population much longer to accede in its status.
