      THIS WEEK IN EDUCATION HISTORY (April 1-7)

      Booker Taliaferro Washington was born on 5 April 1856, in Franklin County,
      Virginia, USA. At his birth, he was a slave; by the end of his life (in
      1915), he was the founder of Tuskegee Institute and one of the most
      prominent men in America. Washington is today best remembered for his
      influential ideas about the education of African-Americans.

      Some very useful academic websites on Booker T. Washington include

      (1900)
