At our Wednesday night discussion, the similarities between Dr. Bledsoe (and the "Founder") and Booker T. Washington were brought up by several people and commented on by Dr. Maxwell. Here is a clip from the PBS Masters film, Ralph Ellison: An American Journey. It features a section, "Dr. Bledsoe: A Fictional Booker T. Washington." Join us for a showing of the complete PBS documentary on August 23, at 7pm.
