University of Virginia: Booker T. Washington Has A New Charlottesville Connection: A Digital Edition Of His Papers. “Booker T. Washington, who emerged from slavery to become one of the leading African American intellectuals around the turn of the 20th century, had ties to Charlottesville that eventually led to a city park being named after him. A new connection between Washington and this area will be forged virtually via the University of Virginia Press’ electronic imprint, Rotunda, which has acquired ‘The Booker T. Washington Papers’ to create a digital edition.”
