Audio Book Summary

Character Building is a compilation of speeches, given by Mr. Booker T. Washington, to the students and staff of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute (now known as Tuskegee University).

Booker T. Washington was one of the most prominent leaders in advancing African-American civil rights. Born into slavery and freed as a young boy, he rose through the ranks of education to eventually earn his position as principal of Tuskegee. Under his guidance, the school was built, by students and for students, to give them a deeply meaningful education. Mr. Washington stressed the importance of developing oneself for life-long success. He strived to imbue in his students the highest personal standards, and these speeches represent the core messages he gave.

(Originally published by Doubleday, Page & Co., NY, in 1902. Summary by Luke Sartor)

    The book and its content is very good and relevant to today. The narrator is very difficult to listen to. He makes Mr. Washington's words less powerful.

    I love this book so much. It's interesting and it teaches you some examples of your self to become a better person and actions that are acceptable and not acceptable in life, around friends and family. Some people might also help you along the way when something is wrong or unacceptable and that there are always consequences when you do something wrong. At some point in your life, people will try to influence you to do bad things and make bad decisions in life so that your dreams and goals can go downhill and you cannot become successful. So you should always stay away from people who are telling you to do bad and stay with people who are manifesting to become something big in life and become successful.
