Booker .Taliaferro .Washington was an African - American socialist , author ,orator and advisor to the presidents of USA ..Washington was a pragmatist who engaged in deliberate ambiguity in order to sustain white recognition of his leadership. His widely read autobiography, Up from Slavery (1901), stands as a classic in the genre of narratives by American self-made men, as well as the prime source for Washington’s social and historical philosophy. His racial philosophy did not long survive his death, but in theory and practice, his views on economic self-reliance have remained one of the deepest strains in Afro-American thought.
