Black History Month: Booker T. Washington

As we wrap-up this year's Black History Month celebration, take some time to go through the list of places you can explore using the Duckwyn Travel app to learn about Black History. Check their web sites as some of these places may not be open due to Covid. 

The last place I wanted to call attention to before the month ends is the Booker T. Washington National Monument. It was here that Washington was born into slavery. He would go on to become an author, orator, and adviser to multiple U.S. presidents. He worked tirelessly to promote black education and entrepreneurship. It was his life goal to build long-term economic strength and bring pride to the African-American community. If you're in Virginia, make sure to set some time aside to visit this national monument to learn more about Booker T. Washington's life.
