HOWEVER - What an amazingly humble but inspirational and successful man he was.
To come from such an under-privileged background to befriending Presidents and even meeting Queen Victoria.
Should be compulsory reading for anyone feeling downtrodden or deprived in any way.
The insights into the issue of slavery and the comparison to the biblical Joseph are thought-provoking. Booker T. views the enslavement of his people as Providential as the blacks who came to America live better than those in the "fatherland" of Africa where one in five children died before they reach age 5.
Every student of history should read this book. I highly recommend it.
