Yes, I think that Booker Washington built a school to help all people (from all races and ages), gain an education. He did it mainly because he wanted his race to take their share of the enjoyment that the other races had enjoyed. He did not want his race to aspire to become more than just slaves; he wanted his race to be equal in capabilities, just like the other races. He really wanted all races to be equal in any and everything. Which came true some decades later.
