3. Booker T. Washington, Will Education Solve the Race Problem? A Reply ([Tuskegee, AL]: Tuskegee Institute Print, 1901). (12 p.)

Response to an article in The North American Review by Professor John Roach Straton, in which the author doubts whether African Americans can benefit from education. Mr. Washington believes that “a judicious system of industrial, mental and religious training” will elevate the black race and resolve the race problem as a result. According to Mr. Washington, the primary obstacle to achieving the education necessary for this transformation is money. (The collection has another copy of this pamphlet in volume 49 [no. 14] and a copy of the original article in volume 78 [no. 37]. The collection also has a copy of Professor Stratons’ article in volume 78 [no. 35].)
