Winner of the Southeastern Society of Architectural Historians Award of Excellence Robert R. Taylor and Tuskegee interweaves the life of the first academically trained African American architect with his lifes workthe campus of Booker T. Washingtons Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute. In this richly illustrated architectural history, the author delves into such questions of how a black boy born in North Carolina shortly after the Civil War could earn a professional architecture degree at MIT, and how he then used his design and administrative skills to further Booker T. Washingtons agenda of community solidarity and, in defiance of strengthening Jim Crow, the public expression of racial pride and progress. The book also considers such issues as architectural education for African Americans at the turn of the twentieth century, the white donors who funded Tuskegees buildings, other Tuskegee architects, and Taylors buildings elsewhere. Individual narratives of Taylors Tuskegee buildings conclude the volume.
