Tuskegee Institute was by far a phenomenal visit. First, the campus was beautiful, the people were gracious, and  the history behind this institute should be taught to students of all races.

As soon as we arrived on campus, the atmosphere changed. Consequently, the pride of the founder could be felt on every street and with every hand that greeted us.

Here’s the George Washington Carver Museum, unfortunately it was closed for renovations, hence we could not go inside.

This amazing home was built brick by brick by the hands of the students at the Tuskegee Institute. Booker T Washington taught them how to work with their hands, not only to build houses but to build their own lives for their families. We were privileged to be able to stand outside of The Oaks, the home of Booker T Washington.

We did not take pictures of the inside, you’ll have to see it for yourself! It is well worth the trip.
