Letter from Booker T. Washington to Theodore Roosevelt

Author:
Washington, Booker T., 1856-1915
Date:
1902-09-27
Description:
Booker T. Washington believes that he can work with James Sullivan Clarkson and that Clarkson understands the Alabama situation. The opposition to "decent, property holding Negroes" by Republican leaders in Alabama is morally wrong and will affect the African American vote in the northern states. Washington hopes that President Roosevelt will rebuke the actions of these Republicans.
