A hazugság nem válik igazsággá, a rossz nem válik helyessé és a gonosz nem válik jóvá csak azért, mert a többség elfogadja. Booker T. Washington (1856. április 5. – 1915. november 14.) amerikai oktató és tanácsadó.

As usual, I was screwing around on the Internet rather than working on one of my latest stories, and I found something so heartwarming that I just had to share it. I realize that not everybody here is a fan of John Wayne, and I know that most - if not all - of us have had our fair share of gripes with the US government, but really, I feel that this message is too important to not share with everybody, and I want all of you to wake up tomorrow and make something out of your day no matter how horrible it turns out to be. The way I see it, if we all do that, then we might not just end up making a better country, but a better world. Ciao for now, and grease for peace!

FROM THE SLAVE HOUSE 
TO THE WHITE HOUSE
Part 4 of 4
White House Dinner With Theodore Roosevelt
In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt invited Washington to the White House, making him the first African American to be so honored. But the fact that Roosevelt asked Washington to dine with him (inferring the two were equal) was unprecedented and controversial, causing an ferocious uproar among white people.
Both President Roosevelt and his successor, President William Howard Taft, used Washington as an adviser on racial matters, partly because he accepted racial subservience.
His White House visit and the publication of his autobiography, Up from Slavery, brought him both acclaim and indignation from many Americans. While some African Americans looked upon Washington as a hero, others, like Du Bois, saw him as a traitor. Many Southern white people, including some prominent members of Congress, saw Washington's success as an affront and called for action to put African Americans "in their place." (excerpt from Biography.com)
DR. Washington advised Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. His infamous conflicts with Black leaders like W. E. B. Du Bois over segregation caused a stir, but today, he is remembered as the most influential African American speaker of his time.
Booker Taliaferro Washington (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915) was an American educator, author, orator, and adviser to several presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African American community and of the contemporary black elite
DR. 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. They were newly oppressed in the South by disenfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
DR. Washington was a key proponent of African-American businesses and one of the founders of the National Negro Business League. His base was the Tuskegee Institute, a historically black college he founded in Tuskegee, Alabama.
 As lynching's in the South reached a peak in 1895, Washington gave a speech, known as the "Atlanta compromise", which brought him national fame. He called for black progress through education and entrepreneurship, rather than trying to challenge directly the Jim Crow segregation and the disenfranchisement of black voters in the South
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. With his own contributions to the black community, Washington was a supporter of racial uplift, but secretly he also supported court challenges to segregation and to restrictions on voter registration.(excerpt from Wikipedia)
Please continue to read on one of the Black race pillars, there is much to uncover that a blog could never capture. He was loved and hated but many of the both races. 
Dr. Washington done so much for the advancement for the black race HIs accomplishments are direct benefits that are still producing like an oil well pumping black gold. 
He was paradoxical with his ideologies, on one hand, he done much for advancing the black race: while holding  reigns on the race systematically to stay in a place of the white man making aka jim crow.

More information on Booker T Washington keep reading
Black activists in the North, led by W. E. B. Du Bois, at first supported the Atlanta compromise, but later disagreed and opted to set up the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to work for political change. They tried with limited success to challenge Washington's political machine for leadership in the black community, but built wider networks among white allies in the North.
State and local governments historically underfunded black schools, although they were ostensibly providing "separate but equal" segregated facilities. White philanthropists strongly supported education financially. Washington encouraged them and directed millions of their money to projects all across the South that Washington thought best reflected his self-help philosophy. 
Washington associated with the richest and most powerful businessmen and politicians of the era. He was seen as a spokesperson for African Americans and became a conduit for funding educational programs.[50]
His contacts included such diverse and well-known entrepreneurs and philanthropists as Andrew Carnegie, William Howard Taft, John D. Rockefeller, Henry Huttleston Rogers, George Eastman, Julius Rosenwald, Robert Curtis Ogden, Collis Potter Huntington, and William Henry Baldwin Jr..
The latter donated large sums of money to agencies such as the Jeanes and Slater Funds. As a result, countless small rural schools were established through Washington's efforts, under programs that continued many years after his death. Along with rich white men, the black communities helped their communities directly by donating time, money, and labor to schools to match the funds required
Decades after Washington's death in 1915, the civil rights movement of the 1950s took a more active and progressive approach, which was also based on new grassroots organizations based in the South, such as Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).

Contrasting the Views of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois.
Washington and DuBois differ in that Washington was investing in ideas of servitude and gratitude to “earn” political rights-that gaining political rights is a process based in understanding the economy and doing labor for that economy, and being inactive in demanding those rights in order to get on the better side of the white majority, and thus also earn rights through having the white majority feel that the Black race is worthy of political rights because no one rocked the boat. DuBois criticized these ideas in presenting that Washington’s ideas worked against itself; that the position of Black people in politics and access to political rights cannot be their own fault because they did not work hard enough to gain social capital, when the lack of the rights that are being demanded in the first place are what have put the Black race in the position to have difficulty reaching the presented ideals, and when those ideals are being worked for, there is legislations and social discriminations to diminish those efforts. Washington’s “help yourself” position is argued by DuBois that if even that would be the way to gain political rights, those efforts are being worked against by the white majority before and after the initial “freedom” of the Black race post-Civil War. Further, DuBois’ position is that instead of submission, it is a necessity for the Black race to gain rights through working directly for those rights rather than using the effort taken in that work towards the economy instead in the hopes that It leads to political rights being “earned” through pleasing the white majority.

FROM GIVING SPEECHES TO SLAVES IN THE COTTON FIELDS 
TO GIVING SPEECHES TO THE COTTON STATES THAT CREATED THE  COTTON FIELDS OF THE SOUTH
Washington's 1895 Address to the Atlanta Cotton States and International Exposition is one of the most famous speeches in American history. The goal of the Atlanta Exposition was to showcase the economic progress of the South since the Civil War, to encourage international trade, and to attract investors to the region.
There is so much information listed on Dr. Washington that if you are interested all you have to do is a Google search. Black Paraphernalia goal is to introduce information to pique one’s interest to do further investigational reading and then  share. ( All images and excerpts are from Google pages - BP disclaimer here)
Part 3 of 4
Booker T. Washington was selected to give a speech that would open the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia. The speech, which is often referred to as the "Atlanta Compromise," was the first speech given by an African American to a racially-mixed audience in the South.
The speech outlines Washington's belief in industrial education in addressing the concerns of the African American community and is seen as an attempt by Washington to ease the concerns of whites.
The speech detailed Washington's accommodationist strategy of achieving racial equality, primarily through vocational training for African Americans. Washington, educator, reformer and the most inflectional black leader of his time (1856-1915) preached a philosophy of self-help, racial solidarity and accommodation. He urged blacks to accept discrimination for the time being and concentrate on elevating themselves through hard work and material prosperity
The phrase that is often repeated in the Atlanta Exposition “Cast down your bucket where you are”.  The phrase was originally a call for a doomed ship to "cast down your bucket" to the ocean, upon which the sailors discovered fresh water to drink from the nearby Amazon River mouth.
Dr. Washington's belief that people should make the most of any situation they find themselves in. He felt that economic opportunity for African Americans was in the south instead of moving to the north, his vision for black people would eventually lead to equal political and civil rights. In the meantime, he advised blacks to put aside immediate demands for voting and ending racial segregation.
What did the Atlanta Compromise accomplish? The agreement was that Southern blacks would work and submit to white political rule, while Southern whites guaranteed that blacks would receive basic education and due process in law. Blacks would not focus their demands on equality, integration, or justice, and Northern whites would fund black educational charities.
What was controversial about the Atlanta Compromise speech? When Washington delivered his famous Atlanta Compromise speech of 1895, he said, “In all things that are purely social, we can be as separate as the fingers.” One can interpret this quote as degrading to blacks. It was a view that many blacks disagreed with and many whites favored

FROM A SLAVE HOUSE 
TO A SCHOOL HOUSE
Born April 5, 1856, in Franklin County, Virginia, Booker Taliaferro was the son of an unknown White man and Jane, an enslaved cook of James Burroughs, a small planter. Booker spent his first nine years as a slave on the Burroughs farm. In 1865, his mother took her children to Malden, West Virginia, to join her husband, who had gone there earlier and found work in the salt mines. 
At age nine, Booker was put to work packing salt. Between the ages of ten and twelve, he worked in a coal mine. He attended school while continuing to work in the mines. In 1871, he went to work as a houseboy for the wife of Gen. Lewis Ruffner, owner of the mines.In 1872, at age sixteen, Booker T. Washington entered Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute in Virginia.
After graduating from Hampton with honors in 1875, Washington returned to Malden to teach. For eight months he was a student at Wayland Seminary, an institution with a curriculum that was entirely academic. This experience reinforced his belief in an educational system that emphasized practical skills and self-help. In 1879, Washington returned to Hampton to teach in a program for American Indians.
In 1880, a bill that included a yearly appropriation of $2,000 was passed by the Alabama State Legislature to establish a school for Blacks in Macon County The school opened July 4, 1881, in a shanty loaned by a Black church, Butler A.M.E. Zion. 
With money borrowed from Hampton Institute's treasurer, Washington purchased an abandoned 100-acre plantation on the outskirts of Tuskegee. Students built a kiln, made bricks for buildings and sold bricks to raise money. Within a few years, they built a classroom building, a dining hall, a girl’s dormitory and a chapel. By 1888, the 540-acre Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute had an enrollment of more than 400 and offered training in such skilled trades as carpentry, cabinet-making, printing, shoemaking and tin smiting. Boys also studied farming and dairying, while girls learned such domestic skills as cooking and sewing.
Through their own labor, students supplied a large part of the needs of the school. In the academic departments, Washington insisted that efforts be made to relate the subject matter to the actual experiences of the students. Strong emphasis was placed on personal hygiene, manners and character building. Students followed a rigid schedule of study and work, arising at five in the morning and retiring at nine-thirty at night. Although Tuskegee was non-denominational, all students were required to attend chapel daily and a series of religious services on Sunday. Washington himself usually spoke to the students on Sunday evening.
 On Tuskegee's 25th anniversary, Washington had transformed an idea into a 2,000-acre, eighty-three building campus that, combined with such personal property as equipment, live stock and stock in trade, was valued at $831,895. Tuskegee's endowment fund was $1,275,644 and training in thirty-seven industries was available for the more than 1,500 students enrolled that year.
Through progress at Tuskegee, Washington showed that an oppressed people could advance. His concept of practical education was a contribution to the general field of education Booker T. Washington was the most famous black man in America between 1895 and 1915. He was also considered the most influential black educator of the late 19th and early 20th centuries insofar as he controlled the flow of funds to black schools and colleges.
