Booker T's Child and Portia, Booker T. Washington Address, 1895 CD
Roy L. Hill
A controversial (though influential) figure in African American history, Booker T. Washington’s image is sanctified here as poet and author, Roy L. Hill, combines forces with Washington’s daughter, Portia Washington-Pittman. Pittman reflects on her father’s life and attempts to counteract the negative perceptions about her father with her own thoughtful understanding of Washington’s disposition. The compilation includes a recording of a speech delivered by Booker T. Washington at the opening of the Atlanta Cotton States in 1895.
