Our History

We Value Every Minute of Our Journey

Booker T Washington

Washington was born in a slave hut on a plantation in Franklin County, Virginia, April 5, 1856. Booker T. Washington observed that since slaves had been forced to work so hard on plantations, once freed, some held the expectation that they did not have to work as hard, even though they benefited from it. 

He countered this by teaching: "No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem." Booker T. Washington.

Booker T. Washington

Graduating from the Hampton Institute in 1875, Booker T. Washington wrote in his book, Up From Slavery, 1901:

"Perhaps the most valuable thing that I got out of my second year at the Hampton Institute was an understanding of the use and value of the Bible." 

Booker T.  Washington became friends with the leading men of his day, including: President William McKinley; President Theodore Roosevelt; President William H. Taft; Steel industrialist Andrew Carnegie; Standard Oil's John D. Rockefeller and Henry Huttleston Rogers; George Eastman, inventor and founder of Kodak; and Sears, Roebuck & Company President Julius Rosenwald.

We will remember the dids of men and women that leaned in the wisdom and knowledge of God. "In 1921 Dr. George Washington Carver spoke for one hour and forty-five minutes concerning potential uses of the peanut and other new crops to improve the economy of the South, the Chairman of the United States Senate Ways and Means Committee in Washington, D. C., asked: "Dr. Carver, how did you learn all of these things?" Carver answered: "From an old book." "What book?" asked the Senator. Carver replied, "The Bible." The Senator inquired, "Does the Bible tell about peanuts?" "No, Sir" Dr. Carver replied, "But it tells about the God who made the peanut. I asked Him to show me what todo with the peanut, and He did." Carver named his laboratory God's Little Workshop.
