Description
 
Booker T. Washington and Africa: The Making Of A Pan Africanist is a
paradigm-shifting book about Washington's evolution as a Pan Africanist and his
clandestine role in African affairs. The book takes a rare look into Booker T.
Washington’s private endeavors through his personal papers. The man many
considered the iconic Accommodationist, pacifist and even Uncle Tom had a
clandestine life as a very progressive Pan Africanist who wielded measurable
power in the realm of African affairs. When out of the public eye, Booker T.
Washington could be found propagandizing against the atrocities taking place in
the Congo Free State under King Leopold, denouncing colonial domination in
Africa, serving as key negotiator in the Liberian Crisis and tactfully
orchestrating the demise of the African Exclusion Measure designed to target and
exclude African and Black persons immigrating to the US from the Caribbean,
Central and South America.

This book establishes that Booker T. Washington belongs amongst the canon of
Pan Africanists that shaped the 20th century, therefore the discourse and narrative
on Booker T. Washington has shifted.
