Dr. Booker T. Washington was born a slave in Virginia and became an Educator, Author, Advisor to Presidents, and the Founder of Tuskegee University (TU) in Alabama. He was committed to both public service and community service. In his autobiography Up from Slavery Dr. Washington wrote “…those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”  The Alumni agree and have chosen this event to express their support of his belief.
