Description

On September 18, 1895, Booker T. Washington gave a speech in Atlanta, often referred to as the “Atlanta Compromise.” It was the first by an African American to a racially-mixed audience in the South, in which he advocated a measured accommodation with whites as opposed to a more militant advocacy for full political rights. This issue of The Outlook made Washington the first African American to be featured on the cover of a national magazine.
