#BlackHistoryMonth Booker Taliaferro Washington (April 5, 1856 - November 14, 1915) was an American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. After being emancipated, he helped raise money to help educate the black youth all throughout the south. His work helped blacks achieve higher education as well as better understanding of the U.S. legal system. Washington’s contributions to African American advancement, such as his programs for rural extension work and his help in the development of the National Negro Business League, are numerous and so too are his accolades. He was the first African-American to be featured on a United States postal stamp in 1940, and on a coin--the Booker T. Washington Veronica Rodriguez, 1871 Manager of Programming

#BlackHistoryMonth “Here’s the thing, I discovered #Prince after his death. My mother handed me an original “Purple Rain” on vinyl and said just listen to it. I spent a recent 2016 evening with the windows open letting the first chords of “The Beautiful Ones” echo out from my Lakeview apartment. The guitars, the vocals, the synths, all of these sounds blended together into arguably one of the greatest listening experiences I’ve ever had with music. I can understand why he paved the way for many artists in the 1980’s. He wasn’t only a musician, he was an icon whose legacy will live well beyond history. Gregory Rothstein, 1871 Photographer
