About this event:
This one-man musical is adapted from talks Dr. Washington gave his students at Tuskegee University. It gives timeless wisdom for people of any age about how to have a productive life.
Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. He was from the last generation of African-American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants.
