January 29, 2010 | New York Times | By WILLIAM GRIMES.
“Booker T. Washington: The Making of a Black Leader, 1856-1901” was
published by Oxford University Press in 1972 and won the Bancroft Prize
the following year. “Booker T. Washington: The Wizard of Tuskegee,
1901-1915,” published by Oxford in 1983, won both the Bancroft Prize and
the Pulitzer Prize for biography in 1984. “It was the first really
three-dimensional work that went into the secret life, the private
world, of the most famous black man of his time,” said Mr. Smock, the
author of “Booker T. Washington: Black Leadership in the Age of Jim
Crow” (Ivan R. Dee, 2009).
