April 5th is the recognized birth date of Booker T. Washington. April 5th, 2006 marks the 150th anniversary of that birth. It is on this auspicious occasion that we wish to announce the Booker T. Washington Inspirational Network (BTWIN) founded by Gloria Jackson JD, great grand-daughter of Booker T. Washington.
The goal of the Booker T. Washington Inspirational Network is to form an alliance of thinkers, writers, speakers, ministers, artists, entertainers and others committed to the vision and ideals of Booker T. Washington.
We believe that the life and legacy of Booker T. Washington have been too long overlooked and even misrepresented, to the detriment of our great nation. Entire generations know little or nothing of his accomplishments, his vision or his message. Others think they know but, unfortunately, have been presented a distorted image and often perpetuate that distorted image. We believe it is time to change that.
