On September 18, 1895, African-American spokesman and leader
Booker T. Washington spoke before a predominantly white audience
at the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta.
His Atlanta Compromise address, as it came to
be called, was one of the most important and influential speeches
in American history. "I have learned that success is
to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached
in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying
to succeed." May he still inspire us today. This precious
document includes a photo and the speech in its entirety.
All documents are reproduced on special fine
paper that have a mottled finish and varied surface similar
to that of the genuine documents of history. The documents
are manufactured from cellulose fibers with sulfuric acid
to enhanced the look and feel of old documents. In addition,
they are treated with sulphite pulp so the "old-antiqued"
look is apparent. We offer only high quality replica documents
of US history that look and feel very similar to the real
documents displayed in Museums. Note!
These documents are NOT CHEAP posters found elsewhere. All
documents are NOT folded.
