Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) April 7, 2006

To honor the memory of Booker T. Washington, one of the most important emancipated African Americans, Legacy Audio Books has released an audio book of Washington’s autobiography, “Up from Slavery.”

The core of Washington’s work was dedicated to educating disenfranchised Blacks in the South and finding ways to unify people of all races. “Our audio book of ‘Up From Slavery’ will give listeners a wonderful, accurate account of Washington’s life.”

Born into slavery in the deep south of the United States, Washington emerged as one of the 19th century’s most recognized leaders, orators and educators. His life and work remains a source of inspiration not only for African Americans but also for all Americans. “Up From Slavery” reflects the thoughts of this great man, who went on to establish one of the most important schools for African Americans in the south, the Tuskegee Industrial Institute.

In the impassioned delivery of Barnes, the “Up from Slavery” audio book brings Washington alive to listeners and drives home the “gems of wisdom” that he scatters throughout his book. “Up From Slavery” is part of Legacy Audio Books’ mission to produce high quality audio books of primarily, but not exclusively, prominent historical figures.

“We seek to honor literary works of great people, and by delivering outstanding vocal performances, to generate renewed interest in the authors’ message,” says Barnes. “Our audio book of ‘Up from Slavery’ will be sure to spur more people to remember one of the most remarkable men of this nation, Booker T. Washington, on his 150th birth anniversary and beyond.”
