ppld.org: Booker Washington, 1856-1915, VA Normal & Ag Inst and Tuskegee Normal & Ind Inst 81, Booker's controversial conviction that blacks could best gain equality in the U.S. by improving their economic situation through education rather than by demanding equal rights was termed the Atlanta Compromise, because Washington accepted inequality and segregation for blacks in exchange for economic advancement. Advised Presidents Teddy and Taft, started National Negro Business League in 90.

I really just wanted to listen to Langston Hughes on this audiobook. Unfortunately, there was only one recording of him reading one poem on the whole audiobook. Most of the rest of it was, as you might imagine given the time period, low quality recordings that were hard to follow. In addition to that, none of the recordings started with introductions for which author one was hearing.
