A two-year archival digitization, faculty-student research, and course development project on the work and legacy of Booker T. Washington, to take place at Tuskegee University.

This project seeks to strengthen humanities education and scholarship at Tuskegee University by re-examining Booker T. Washington's influence in education, politics and civil rights, business, and literature and the arts. Although considerable scholarship on Washington already exists, the extent of his regional, national, and global impact has not been fully explored. The project will include faculty-student research collaborations; enrichment of existing English and History courses; development of a new interdisciplinary, team-taught course; a public symposium; creation of a new section of the Tuskegee University Archives Web site to include previously unexplored archival materials on Washington's life and work; and initiation of an ongoing Humanities Institute.
