      **1895 September 18- Booker T. Washington makes a speech at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta , Georgia . Known as the "Atlanta Compromise" speech, Washington advocates acceptance of a subordinate role for African Americans, espouses peaceful coexistence with white Southerners, and calls agitation over the question of social equality "the extremist folly."  The speech, which reportedly leaves some African American listeners in tears and will incur the wrath of W.E.B. Du Bois and others, secures Washington 's reputation among whites as a successor to Frederick Douglass.
