Come to Hardy to visit the site of famed educator, orator, and presidential advisor, Booker T. Washington's birth, early life, and emancipation. Washington's ideas about education, race, and labor were shaped on this tobacco plantation. The park provides a focal point for discussion about one of the most powerful African Americans in history and the evolving context of race in American society.
