Sections 13 and 14 are PL OK
You almost moved me to tears with you description of Washington's speech and its reception. Such skillful narrative. :)

I'll see if I can find a copy of that speech. We need to have it recorded.

Booker T.'s other autobiography, Up from Slavery, is also on my docket to do.
Maybe you would like to take it on as a solo?

I probably have a dozen or more books by or about Booker T. Washington that I have on my project list. His voice needs to be heard.
Larry,

The words moved me also :) If politics is truly "The art of the possible." This man was an Artist in the Miles Davis, William Shakespear class :!: There seemed to have been this juxtaposition between him and Dubois in which he inevitably got the short end of the argument. Reading this work in his voice it has become clear to me that those were two completely different conversations. Dubois's conversation is academic, philosophical even. This man was about getting stuff done here and now. "Throw down your Bucket!", indeed. With what Washington had to work with, the time and place he had to work in. Truly impressive. All this is to say, I completely agree with you and would be honored to do a solo reading of Up from Slavery.

I would like to claim sections 21 and 22.
I also noticed that sec 16 which I uploaded a few days ago was never tagged Ready for PL. Was there something wrong with the upload? Should I upload again?

Thanks

I've added these in the MW.
Sorry about missing 16 -- slipped in at the bottom of the page. But, I'll PL soon.
Well, I'm taking a family day off tomorrow so I might be a little late with it. :)
