ABSTRACT
The article offers arguments that cast African-American author and educator Booker T. Washington both as a pragmatist and a progressivist. These arguments are drawn from analysis of Washington's formal writings, speeches, and correspondence as well as extensive secondary sources that deal with specifically with his educational thinking, policies, and practices. Washington was the first leader of the Tuskegee University. He also discouraged the political participation of blacks.
