Booker T Washington (1856-1915)
was an American educator, author and lecturer. Freed from slavery as a child, he earned his way through an education at Hampton Institute and Wayland Seminary. He was appointed as the first leader of the new Tuskegee Institute, then a teachers' college for blacks.

I resolve that I would permit no man,
no matter what his color might be,
to narrow and degrade my soul
by making me hate him
