Booker T. Washington, the German Empire, and the Globalization of the New South
To read the entire book description or the introduction, please visit: http://press.princeton.edu/titles/9190.htmlIn 1901, the Tuskegee Institute, founded by Booker T. Washington, sent an expedition to the German colony of Togo in West Africa, with the purpose of transforming the region into a cotton economy similar to that of the post-Reconstruction American South. Alabama in Africa explores the politics of labor, sexuality, and race behind this endeavor, and the economic, political, and intellectual links connecting Germany, Africa, and the southern United States."This book . . . is incontestably a major contribution. It demonstrates decisively the value of the vanguard trend that is the internationalizing of the African-American experience."--Gerald Horne, Journal of American HistoryPaper | $24.95 / £16.95 | ISBN: 9780691155869
