IE20: Amanda Washington. Continuing the Legacy of Booker T. Washington's Fight for Educational Equality.
As the great great granddaughter of Booker T. Washington, Amanda Washington's contribution to education remains very personal through her past work as a Spanish teacher for Teach for America. Her current challenge is to define and produce a more diverse educational opportunity for all children. As a graduate student at Columbia University's Teacher's College and as an intern with the White House Initiative for Educational Excellence for African Americans (WHIEEAA), the legacy of Booker T. Washington continues through Amanda.
