We also have over 300 boxes of materials specific to his work, materials regarding the National Negro Business League and the National Negro Health Week. View the Guide to the Papers of Booker T. Washington (Tuskegee), the Papers of Booker T. Washington finding aid (Library of Congress), Booker T. Washington biographical sketch, and our digitized materials about Booker T. Washington.

They contain important speeches by a variety of Civl Rights Icons. We have also included important images to corresspond with our tapes. To the right is a heading entitled additional links.
