The Business Strategy of Booker T. Washington

University Press of Florida

This chapter outlines Washington's influence on African-American life and history. The chapter argues that Washington certainly publicly championed business formation and development more than any other African-American. Washington institutionalized his ideas with the creation and development of the Tuskegee Institute, the Negro Farmers' Conference, and the NNBL. The chapter highlights the criticism by W. E. B. Du Bois, another African-American leader of Washington's business philosophy, and the views of other authors to determine the significant contribution made by Washington to African-American life.

Keywords:   African-American life, business formation, Tuskegee Institute, business philosophy, W. E. B. Du Bois, criticism, Booker T. Washington
