To improve existing Booker T. Washington Park with needed information about its namesake, the great American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States; founder of the Tuskeegee Institute.  Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community.  Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants.  He grew up a slave child in Franklin County, Va., and after Emancipation traveled with his mother to find his father in West Virginia, near Charleston.  Determined to get an education, he walked most of the 500 miles across West Virginia and Virginia to attend school at the Hampton Institute including the Three Chopt Road, now our Downtown Mall. He was a lifelong friend of Charlottesville's Benjamin Tonsler (who has his own park named after him), and stayed at Tonsler's home on his way to assume the presidency of Tuskeegee Institute .    More about Washington.
