Named one of the best non-fiction books of the twentieth century by Modern Library, Up from Slavery is the poignant telling, in plain language, of Booker T. Washington’s rise from slavery to become a preeminent advocate for civil rights of his time.

Although Up from Slavery was initially criticized by African-American leaders for Washington’s perceived soft-pedalling of his message of racial equality and progress, the autobiography was a best-seller that furthered the idea that education was the key to the advancement of their cause in the United States.
