This is a wonderful addition to the Library of African American Biography. . . . Mr. Smock’s Booker T. Washington satisfies the need for a volume that will be accessible to students, both undergraduate and graduate, and to scholars and the general-reading public who need to ‘catch up on the latest’ on a most important figure in African-American History.
A powerful survey, this is a fine choice. . . . Highly recommended addition to public and college library biography shelves.
