"Born into slavery, Booker T. Washington could only dream of learning to read and write. After emancipation, Booker began a five-hundred-mile journey, mostly on foot, to Hampton Institute, taking his first of many steps towards a college degree. When he arrived, he had just fifty cents in his pocket and a dream about to come true. The former slave who once waited outside the schoolhouse would one day become a legendary educator of freedmen."--Publisher's description.
