1913 - Booker T. Washington to Speak Tonight

The Tacoma TImes
March 17 1913

Famous Negro Educator Here This Evening

Booker T. Washington, the greatest negro that ever lived in all probability, judged by his work for his race, will speak at the First Christian church in the regular lecture course tonight.  Following his talk there he will go to Valhalla hall and address the colored people where he will also be banqueted.  The local negroes have raised $100 to give him for his work of negro education at Tuskegee, Alabama.
