The Birthplace Of Booker Taliaferro Washington

Author’s Note:

Earlier today, I had the oppurtunity to visit the Booker Taliaferro Washington Birthplace and National Monument in Franklin County, Virginia.

One of my relatives from my mother’s side of my family, which is directly related to Founding Father George Mason IV, married into the Roosevelt family before Theodore Roosevelt was born.

My relative Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker Taliaferro Washington for dinner, and was the first ever United States President to entertain a Black person in the White House.

It was indeed an honor to visit the birthplace of an American author, educator, orator, and advisor to multiple United States Presidents!
