Teddy and Booker T. : how two American icons blazed a path for racial equality

Kilmeade, Brian (author.).

Summary: "When President Theodore Roosevelt welcomed the country's most visible Black man, Booker T. Washington, into his circle of counselors in 1901, the two confronted a shocking and violent wave of racist outrage. In the previous decade, Jim Crow laws had legalized discrimination in the South, eroding social and economic gains for former slaves.
